NEW MD FOR DISCOVERY YACHTS
Some years ago John Charnley decided to build his dream yacht in which he and his wife would cruise the world together. The yacht he built became the Discovery 55 and was so successful that John was unable to realise his dream immediately, developing the company and building these outstanding cruising yachts. With the companies expansion in place he will now become Chairman and finally set sail in the first of the new Discovery 50 Catamarans which will launch in the Spring of 2009. John and his wife Caroline will become roving ambassadors for the company showing the Discovery 50 Cat at a number of boat shows world wide.
Taking up the reigns of Managing Director is Nigel Stuart, previously the Production Director at Discovery's factory in Marchwood, Southampton. Nigel has been with the company for 18 months following a career spanning 15 years with yacht charter company, Sunsail. He undertook a number of management roles for Sunsail which included cruising charters, the Turkish Club, and the Inland Waterways division. A qualified Yachtmaster, he has sailed in waters around the world, bringing a unique level of experience to the management team of Discovery. He will provide valuable information about global cruising waters for their customers from his intimate knowledge of what is needed for successful blue water cruising.
