A new crop of exciting sailboats—from performance-oriented dinghies to drop-dead gorgeous flagships—is coming to a boat show near you

Discovery 58

Every sail is roller furling on the Discovery 58, a cutter-rigged world cruiser with a self-tacking jib. The coachroof has a pilothouse-style forward window, and Discovery Yachts offers optional twin wheels or a single-wheel cockpit design. The Ron Holland-designed hull combines performance and easy motion. Electric winches are standard, and the boat is rigged for doublehanded sailing.
