Joysway Discovery 2 - Boat or keel wanted
« on: March 04, 2021, 08:33:33 am »

Hi,
I have been enjoying sailing a couple of Joysway Discovery MK2 Yachts with my children.
I want to get a 3rd one so we can all race together.
I have managed to find another one BUT it has the older style silver keel which is lighter and far less effective.
As a result it is no match for the other 2 boats that have the newer, heavier white keel.
I therefore seek a white keel to buy or a complete yacht to buy.
If anyone has one of these lying around, complete or in bits then please contact me so we can discuss.
Thanks

Hi Joe,
Many thanks for your helpful suggestion. I have checked the website and sadly it does not offer Spares for the discovery - it has various other Joysway Yachts but not mine  :((
However you have given me an idea - perhaps my keel is the same as the keel from another Joysway model - so I have emailed them to ask that question.
Thanks again

Hope they can help, I know the winged keel fits several Joysway Yachts.

Thanks for the info.I tried to call them but it goes to voicemail so I have emailed them with all the details.
I also have called round a number of model shops all over the country, and spoken to the company that was the UK distributor for the Joysway range - and drawn a blank with them all.
I have to hope that someone, somewhere may have an old one of these boats or knows someone that does, perhaps broken and collecting dust in a loft or shed or something.
Fingers crossed!!

CMB will probably get back to you eventually, they are an excellent company but dealing with huge demand and less staff at this time.
