Why we feel the Classic Fantail Yacht Discovery is perfect for your Alaska Yacht Charter

The M. V. Discovery was originally designed and built as ‘Holiday’ for William Morris of the William Morris agency in 1931 in San Pedro, California. From her Teak decks and Deckhouse to her fine Mahogany paneling she reflects an era long past when craftsmanship meant pride in artistry. “It was said of her shortly after her launch by Pacific Motor Boat, Designed specifically to obtain just the arrangements specified by Morris, who evidently demanded comfort and convenience in all matters aboard ship as well as a sturdy sea-going vessel inspiring confidence in her abilities by her very appearance”. We believe that statement still holds true today and makes her an excellent choice for your Southeast Alaska Yacht Charter.

Our goal is to exceed our customers expectations not just meet them. We hope you’ll join us on an Alaska Yacht Charter so we can share this remarkable area with you.
