Discovery Yachts Group will launch a new boutique superyacht with push button sailing at London On-Water.

The Britannica 74 is designed to be easily handled by two people and features push button sailing and just three control ropes for minimum effort.

Sean Langdon, brainchild of the yacht and managing director of Discovery Yachts Group, said: “There was a gap in the market between what Spirit offers in terms of classic yachts and our own modern luxury market.

“The Britannica will sit firmly between these two markets as a classic yacht with all the benefits state of the art technology has to offer. And you don’t need a vast crew to sail her.”

Production on the first hull is expected to start in September, to deliver the first finished yacht in time for the Southampton Boat show in September 2019.

The launch event at St Katherine’s Dock on Friday 11 May will feature a scale model and complete designs available to view.
