Solent Marine Surveys took this Discovery 67 out for a sea trial from Berthon, Lymington, through The Solent to the Nab Tower, and back.

This sea trial followed on from the pre-purchase survey of the yacht we had carried out previously.

The conditions were just perfect for this vessel: the wind was over 30 knots, gusting to 40 knots. This blue water cruiser however, happily cruised at 12 to 13 knots off the wind, and 9 knots or so to windward.

A sea trial like this one was, is one of the highlights of being a Marine Surveyor!
