ABOUT DISCOVERY

DISCOVERY, Contract #446, is the third to the last Trumpy built and the last of the desired houseboats. Commissioned by Mr. Earl Cantor, she was named originally named GERIFAY and was used as a committee boat in the 1974 Americas Cup off Newport, RI.  Later names, in correct order, include: LADY Q, HILLARY JANE, CARONIA, ZARYA, STATELY LADY and finally DISCOVERY.  Her present owner has continued the first rate custodianship of this very fortunate yacht.  Those inspecting her will find her in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, with fresh hull paint, updated systems and basically wanting for nothing but a new owner’s personal touches.

Vessel Overview

DISCOVERY, Contract #446, is the third to the last Trumpy built and the last of the desired houseboats with an on deck galley.  Commissioned by Mr. Earl Cantor, she was named originally named GERIFAY and was used as a committee boat in the 1974 Americas Cup off Newport, RI.  Later names, in correct order, include: LADY Q, HILLARY JANE, CARONIA, ZARYA, STATELY LADY and finally DISCOVERY.  Her present owner has continued the first rate custodianship of this very fortunate yacht.  Those inspecting her will find her in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, with fresh hull paint, updated systems and basically wanting for nothing but a new owner’s personal touches.

Broker Remarks

DISCOVERY is without a doubt one of the most nicely equipped and maintained Trumpy’s on the market. Her generous 18’ beam, on deck day head, and large crew quarters make her very comfortable for entertaining or extended cruising.  The present owner has capitalized over $520,000 in improvements alone during last two years to ensure she is as sound and reliable as possible.  She shows very well and those who inspect her will find that she does not disappoint.  All 2013/2014/2015 refit work was done by the experts at McMillan Yachts, Inc. in Portsmouth, RI.
