Discovery 57

This is one of the boats that is nominated for the 2013 European boat of the year contest in the category of Luxury cruisers. Cannot say it is a favorite of mine and the thing I like most is the galley. That one is one of the best I have seen on a 55/57ft boat. Just great. The interior is a Ken Frievokh design and it is in my opinion a very good one. Nice design everywhere:

The hull, cabin and rig are a Ron Holland design and I don't like it very much. A 57ft the boat should look more elegant and the hull design looks 15 year old. The Englishmen are very traditional but even so. I really don't like the wheel's man position, up on the "2th floor", very high and without any protection from the spray or wind. The transom looks just...old.
