Discovery Yachts, world class yacht builder of blue-water cruising yachts, has invested over £150,000 in a new CNC 5 Axis cutting and milling machine. The new equipment which replaces the company’s existing 3 Axis machine, recently arrived at Harbour Yard and undertook its first day of operation this week.

The new 5 Axis machines will enable the company to accurately cut complex shapes for the highly crafted bespoke interiors that are the hallmark of Discovery’s range of award winning yachts. The investment in these highly technical precision machines will result in a significantly more efficient and faster throughput for the in-house joinery shop as well as enabling the company to increase its capacity and improve efficiencies.

Discovery Yachts are one of the few UK boatbuilders able to offer its customers in-house craftsmanship of such quality and this new investment together with its recent purchase of bespoke veneer press, cutting and finishing equipment takes their in-house capabilities to a new level. Discovery customers are now able to enjoy a full choice of interior timbers, individual designs and bespoke inlay work for their luxury blue-water yacht.

Commenting on the new equipment, Managing Director, Nigel Stuart said, “Our significant investment in this state-of-the-art 5 axis equipment during these uncertain economic times confirms our commitment to driving the business forward and ensuring growth through innovation and investment. This investment will ensure that we can offer our discerning clients the highest quality in-house joinery together with the opportunity for unique and personal designs to be incorporated into the build of their yachts.”

In the last month, Discovery Yachts has completed and handed over three new luxury yachts to owners as well as announcing the launch of their latest design, the Discovery 57 at the recent Southampton Boat Show
