The Discovery 67 is offered with two deck layout options.

Single Wheel Version – 67S (Standard)
With this arrangement, the cockpit is divided into two parts, each self-draining with large cockpit drains. All drains have slotted stainless covers to prevent small items being lost overboard. The forward part of the cockpit provides a spacious, comfortable seating area, with carefully sculptured seat bases and well angled, deep seat backs for maximum comfort and safety. A substantial table, incorporating drinks stowage and glass holders, is mounted centrally for outdoor eating. This incorporates a stainless steel grab handle, and a central foot rails. A pair of water resistant cockpit speakers are fitted. There is an instrument housing just forward of the main hatch. The side benches extend through to the aft cockpit to provide maximum seating and sunbathing space. The cockpit seats and forward sole are finished in solid teak. The aft part of the cockpit is designed to give the helmsman an uncluttered helming area. The curved helm seat provides good forward visibility and comfort, whether the boat is heeled or upright. The custom designed pedestal provides a clear instrument and control platform. The 48” diameter leather-covered wheel is mounted on the pedestal, with instruments, controls and single lever throttle immediately to hand. The side seats also provide a comfortable helm position. The aft cockpit is normally selfdraining. However, this cockpit has the option of being filled with sea or fresh water to provide a “hot tub” or “splash pool”, and the cockpit is shaped to allow two people to comfortably lie back and relax in this area. There is cockpit lighting positioned on the underside of the boom for evening dining.

Twin Wheel Version – 67T (Optional)
The twin wheel version offers a large comfortable cockpit as above, with a large cockpit table. In addition, there are then two helm positions further aft, each with 39” leather covered wheels. Each helm position has an instrument console. A single lever throttle is fitted to one helm position as standard, with repeater throttle as an option. This options provides a walk through from the cockpit going aft which allows easy access to the aft deck and transom area. We will be pleased to discuss the merits of each layout.

Sprayhood and (Optional) Bimini Top
The cockpit is well protected by a large folding sprayhood with 32mm (1 ?”) diameter stainless supports and a stainless grab handle on its aft edge. Large clear panels provide good forward visibility. When not in use the sprayhood folds behind a moulded coaming on the coachroof. A Bimini Top is offered as an option. This is set on stainless steel frames, and extends beyond the immediate cockpit. On the standard cockpit version (67S) it provides good shade for the whole cockpit. It can have optional roll down side panels for when the sun is low on the horizon. Bimini Tops may be customised to suit your preferences. A full sun awning to cover half or all of the boat is also available as an option. This not only provides shade, but also shields open hatches.

Cabin Accommodation

Main Saloon
The saloon is designed to allow panoramic views whether standing or seated. The saloon allows really comfortable seating. The saloon table folds down from dining to “coffee table” size, but when needed, the saloon can dine eight people or more comfortably. The dinette is also long enough to be used as a comfortable sea berth. There is a drinks locker. There are also extensive stowage lockers in this area. Two opening deck hatches, together with the oversize companionway hatch provide good ventilation.

Access to the main saloon from the cockpit is via three easy steps with good handholds. There are grab handles and sturdy fiddles positioned throughout - to allow easy movement around the boat.

Main Forward Guest Stateroom
The forward stateroom provides sleeping accommodation that is nearly as spacious as the aft stateroom. The king size bed is 6’8” long with a maximum width of 5’ 4” (2m x 1.6m). A central lee cloth is provided for sea going use. Shelves, drawers and a wardrobe provide good storage.

Light and ventilation are provided by two fixed ports in the hull (opening optional), and a large opening hatch overhead. Fans (24v) are available as an option.

It has its own en-suite head compartment. This incorporates an electric WC, hand basin with mixer tap, and a spacious shower compartment. This is a GRP moulding for easy cleaning. Worktops are in Velstone, colour to owner’s choice. An opening deck hatch provides light and ventilation.

Forward Guest/Crew (Pullman) Cabin
The forward guest cabin (to starboard) offers two single berths - upper and lower - (fitted with lee cloths), with drawers for clothes, and a hanging locker. There is an opening hatch overhead, and a fixed port in the hull (optional opening port).

Forward Heads Compartment (Starboard)
The forward head compartment on starboard is fitted with electric WC, hand basin and shower. This head compartment can be accessed either from the Pullman cabin or the forward passageway. It provides for the Pullman cabin or the port Guest cabin. This head also serves as the day head.

Port Guest Cabin
As standard this cabin has a double berth, drawers and hanging wardrobe. It has two opening hatches overhead and a fixed port in the hull (optional opening port). Fans (24v) are optional An en-suite heads compartment with separate shower is shared with the forward cabin. An option is to have this cabin arranged as a Pullman cabin with two good sized upper and lower berths.

Starboard Aft Quarter
The area on starboard aft of the navigation station offers a wide choice of alternative layouts. The standard provides a really good sized single berth (ideal navigator’s sea berth), along with plenty of stowage or an optional work bench. Other options can include a double Pullman cabin.


D.C Electrics
The engine and generator are 12v start. The main engine is fitted with a 60 amp/hour 12v alternator. The main engine has its own 200 amp/hour start battery, and the generator has its own 120 amp/hour start battery.

A second 24v, 110 amp/hour alternator on the engine supplies the yacht’s main 24v system. The domestic batteries are industrial heavy duty, deep cycle, sealed AGM or gel batteries totalling 600 amp/hour capacity at 24v. (Equivalent to 1200 amps at 12v). These batteries, under normal use, should have a ten year or more operational life, and are the best batteries available anywhere. They are maintenance free. The batteries are fully secured in place.

A 24v to 12v converter provides a 12v power source.

The yacht’s wiring is tinned multi-strand marine grade cable, sized to ABS voltage loss regulations. Distribution is by a LAN-Bus system. Heavy-duty battery switches isolate all circuits except bilge pumps which are independent. Wiring is clearly labelled and numbered or colour coded. Wiring is fed in conduits wherever appropriate.

The control panel provides full power management information (both DC and AC).

The mast is grounded to the ballast keel for lightning protection.

Sterngear, chainplates, seacocks and keel are electrically bonded and linked to the common earth system.

Battery Charging
The engine and generator start batteries are each charged by their own alternators. This provides secure starting back up with the two separate batteries. These have an emergency link facility, which would also allow charging from either alternator. The 24v domestic battery bank is charged by the 110 amp/hour alternator on the engine or by the Victron Energie battery charger. This charges at 75 amp/hours (24v) from the generator or shore power. A second 3kW inverter / 75 amp charger, or a 5kW Victron Quattro unit are optional.

A.C Electrical System
The A.C. panel controls a 30 amp 230v (110v option) ring main, with power sockets in the galley, main saloon and each cabin. A.C. power can be provided by the standard Victron Energie 3kW static inverter, dockside supply, or standard diesel generator. (A second 3kW Static Inverter or Quattro unit is available as an option). A 1kW immersion heater is fitted in the hot water tank for use when using dockside supply or with the generator.

A 3 core Marinco double insulated 16 amp PVC dockside power cable (20m) with appropriate sockets is provided.

For use anywhere in the world, an optional isolation transformer can accept either 230v or 115v shore power. We are happy to discuss your sailing plans and power requirements and offer advice accordingly.


The “U-shaped” galley has been designed with use both at sea and in harbour in mind. The general layout is as the plan. The double sink is set near the centreline of the boat, so that it can drain on either tack. Since water from sinks, washing up, vegetable preparation etc. always seems to have a mind of its own, the whole of this inboard worktop is Velstone with large Velstone and cherry fiddles to contain all spillages, which can easily be wiped back into the sinks! Hot and cold pressure water is fed to a mixer tap. There is a separate foot operated fresh water pump. A large draining bin is built in besides the sink, so that plates etc can be left to dry securely. This is also a really useful place to put things down and know that they will be secure. There is extensive stowage in lockers and drawers above and below the worktop. There is enough space for an optional front-loading dishwasher.

Halogen down lights provide good working light. There is an additional overhead red night light. There is a really good rubbish chute leading to a pull-out waste container under the worktop. There are fiddles and grab handles throughout.

Two opening ports in the coachroof provide ventilation and light, a fixed port in the hull, an opening hatch overhead, and a good sized opening hatch into the cockpit - which allows food to be passed directly to the cockpit. A 230v (110v) extractor fan is fitted over the cooker.

Forward there is a large, well insulated, stainless steel deep freeze of 170 litres (6.0 cu.ft) capacity. The interior is fitted with shelves. Outboard and aft of that is the huge main stainless steel fridge of 300 litres (10.4 cu.ft) capacity, with a front opening door. This is fitted with shelves and an internal light. (See refrigeration section for details). Fridge and freezer are positioned so that crew can reach cold drinks etc without disturbing the cook! The freezer can also be used as a fridge should an extra chill cabinet be required.

There is a Force 10 three or four burner gimballed cooker, with grill and oven set into a GRP moulded recess. It is fitted with fiddles/pan holders and has flame failure devices. A safety switch is provided to the remote gas supply solenoid shut off valve. There is a stainless ‘crash’ bar running in front of the cooker. There are deep fiddles around the Velstone finish worktop. There is good stowage outboard for crockery and food storage. A 230v (110v) microwave oven is fitted as standard.

The standard refrigeration and freezers are 24v Frigomatic systems, with sea-water keel cooled heat exchangers for extremely efficient cooling and quiet running. Both the freezer and fridge boxes are constructed with 80mm to 150mm closed cell insulation throughout for maximum efficiency, and vapour barriers are fitted around the doors to prevent condensation, especially in warmer climes. Both fridge and freezer are specified for full tropical use.

Engine Mechanical

The standard engine is the YANMAR 4LHADTP. This is a 4 cylinder, turbo charged engine, which develops 200hp (147kW) at 3,300 RPM. Fitted with a 2.8:1 reduction gearbox, it is designed for smooth, long running operation. It has excellent torque characteristics that allow it to power a large, slow turning propeller for quiet motoring. Yanmar provides a worldwide service network. The engine is fitted with dual alternators. (See electrical specification for more details). The exhaust is fed to an HMI water separator, which eliminates almost all exhaust and cooling water noise. The cooling water is expelled under the waterline to minimise noise even further.

Stern Gear
The engine is mounted on flexible feet to minimise vibration. An Aquadrive coupling at the inboard end of the 1.75” (44mm) stainless steel shaft then transfers the thrust to the hull via a thrust bearing. This further reduces vibration, noise and wear. The shaft is led to a cast bronze P-bracket. An anode is fitted to the shaft. A rope cutter is optional.

A folding three bladed 26” diameter Gori propeller is fitted as standard. This folds automatically to maximise sailing performance. It gives excellent handling performance, ahead or astern.


The hull is laid up in female moulds. The immensely strong lay up specified by the Designer and Structural Engineers is designed to meet or exceed full CE regulations Category “A - Ocean”. The hull has two coats of isothalic gelcoat which is non-pigmented below the waterline helping to resist osmosis. This is followed by powder-bound mat. Vinylester resin is used throughout the hull, which gives superior strength over more traditional polyester resins. This, together with the isothalic gel coat, provides a hull that is highly resistant to osmosis and enables us to give a five year written guarantee against osmosis. To add to the protection, the hull below the waterline is epoxy painted and given two coats of antifouling before the boat is launched. A double boot top line is sprayed or moulded in, and a caveta line is hand applied when the boat is sign written.

The lay-up incorporates an end-grain balsa core above the waterline and high strength structural PVC foam core below the waterline, which provides exceptional stiffness and insulation yet keeps the weight down, whilst minimising noise and condensation. This is laid up under vacuum to ensure complete structural integrity. Woven E-glass mat is used extensively for optimum strength to weight ratio and this is further stiffened by a layer of woven Kevlar throughout the forward part of the hull providing superior strength and high impact resistance. There are massive stringers running the full length of the boat to port and starboard. These incorporate the engine beds and tank supports. Structural bulkheads are of marine grade plywood laminated to the hull and deck.

For additional safety there are two watertight bulkheads forward – one aft of the chain locker, and another between the main forward sail locker and the fore cabin. The aft lazarette lockers are contained behind their own watertight bulkheads.

Deck and Hull

The deck is moulded in GRP with a balsa core to provide strength and insulation which means that condensation and noise from external sources is minimised. A bulwark runs around the whole deck edge to give strength and a feeling of security. Wherever there are load bearing areas plywood replaces the balsa core. All load bearing fittings have aluminium or stainless steel backing plates. The deck incorporates two lazarette lockers, and a self-draining gas and outboard fuel locker amidships, a large sail locker forward, and a self draining chain locker at the bow. An emergency recovery ladder is built into the bottom transom step. A useful grab handle is provided when coming alongside in a dinghy. A substantial bathing ladder, which can also be used as a side boarding ladder is provided. A bathing shower with hot and cold supply is standard. The deck lockers are fitted with interior lights, and the sail locker with a gas strut and interior light.

All sidedecks, forward coachroof, cockpit seats, helmsman’s seat, forward cockpit sole and transom steps are all teak laid, using finest quarter sawn teak, with no visible fastenings. There is teak capping on the bulwarks.

A 22” TFT flat screen television is mounted in the saloon and interfaced to the DVD player. Additional televisions may be fitted as options.

Mast & Rig Options

The oval section mast is keel stepped, with triple swept back spreaders, which does away with the need for running backstays and forward facing lowers. The result is clear uncluttered decks and easy handling.

The standard finish is extruded silver anodised aluminium alloy. White finish (Awlgrip or powder coated) spars are available as an option. The standard rig is electric in-mast reefing with vertical sail battens. Push button control from the cockpit allows one person to reef or put away the sail. There is a manual over-ride of the electric motor. The mast is fitted with internal halyards. A conventional horizontal battened main is available as an option.

The standard headsail arrangement is a “Solent Jib rig”. (A) – with roller reefing on the Genoa and self-tacking blade Jib (c. 90%). Sail plan (B) “cutter rig” offers a roller furling self-tacking staysail and roller furling Genoa. Sail plan (C) offers a 100% self-tacking roller furling Jib. Each of these rigs has its own advantages. We would be delighted to talk through your own preferences.
