To design the DISCOVERY 57 metre motor yacht, Luca Dini (from LUCA DINI Design & Architecture) was briefed to propose a boat that encapsulates the distinctive characteristics of Explorer and Shuttle style yachts, that is: exceptionally large outdoor spaces with indoor liveability so to emphasize the indoor-outdoor connection. A yacht with a sober elegance, extremely contemporary lines to make it look sporty and dynamic and with large and well laid out outdoor spaces. The blue-petroleum colour hull was chosen to blend in perfectly with the sea without conflict or competition. The external lines hint at the tenuous nostalgic past of well-defined shapes skilfully mixed with current trends, turning the DISCOVERY 57 into an example of successful coexistence of elegance and technology and ensuring the maximum comfort during navigation even at long range without neglecting safety and reliability. The large external spaces comprise also two flush-deck pools: one on the main and one on the fly deck and a generously sized beach club.
Two different main deck layouts offer the option of either dedicating the whole forward area only to the master cabin or fitting it also with a VIP extra cabin on the starboard side.
Whichever the version, the accommodation also features four guest cabins all en suite on the lower deck as well as six functional cabins for the crew, whereas the captain’s quarters is located on the upper deck.
