New boats 2017

2016 September 1

We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Discovery 58

This Ron Holland-designed beauty will turn heads in any harbor. The big brother to the “couple’s cruiser” Discovery 55, this 58-foot version offers ease and beauty in one package. In-mast furling, electric winches, self-tacking jib and a walk-in engine room are some of the details that make it easy. The wraparound windows offer panoramic views from the saloon, gorgeous teak decks and captain’s choice of three- or four-cabin layouts are part of what makes it beautiful. This boat is designed with storage, comfort and performance in mind for the bluewater cruiser. LOA 58’9”; Beam 16’9”, Draft 7’9”; Displ. 60, 075 lbs.; Sail area 1,796 sq. ft., www.discoveryyachts.com. Sailaway price: $1.7 million
