DISCOVERY 47 sailboat specifications and details on
It was a discovery I did not know that boat that is very modern for a 1969 cruiser. Pity that the picture is a bit misleading. it looks a centerboarder but in fact it is a deep fin keel boat with 2.10m. A big draft for that time and an usually one today. Do you know if many were made? Probably not as it happens sometimes with boats that are way ahead of its time.
