VESSEL HISTORY

Designed and built in Cape Town, South Africa at Robertson & Caine and launched in 1989. 

 

Previously owned by a Cape Town, South Africa business owner and his wife. This vessel placed 1st in the 2006, 1,785 mile, Cape Town to St. Helena island race, and 3rd out of 34 entries in the 2009, 3,600 mile Heinken Cape to Bahia/Salvador race. The owners then cruised her in 2009  from Cape Town to Brazil. Eventually, they settled in British Colombia, Canada, where Billy Graham Yachts found the boat for the current Canadian owners. 

 

The current owners purchased Good as Gold in April 2010, eventually cruising the BC coast and the South Pacific, to her current location ready for the next owners in Vanuatu. To quote the current owners "as first time sailboat boat owners and offshore cruisers, she is an awesome and forgiving  offshore vessel"
