OWNERS COMMENTS:
Golden Fleece was commissioned by us to take us - a husband and wife team - safely across oceans and she has performed admirably, never letting us down.
First and foremost she was designed for blue water cruising and for safe and reasonably quick ocean crossings, with a modern hull shape by a recognised top designer and built by a steel hull boat builder who had a reputation for building excellent hulls and fitted out by a team of professional shipwrights who would not compromise on quality.

Every piece of joinery is hand crafted using the best materials available (teak and mahogany) and then coated with many, many coats of varnish.
She was rigorously inspected during the construction to gain the European recreational craft certification for ocean crossings. Every detail is well thought out, from the design of the rig, the type of electrical cable used throughout, the engine make and size, to the layout of the interior.

We set out to build a vessel with pedigree which we think we achieved.

From the first passage across the Bay of Biscay, to Canary Islands, Mediterranean, Crossing North and South Atlantic we have always felt safe and secure in her well protected centre cockpit and on her uncluttered decks. On passage her strong rig and sailplan, self-steering, together when necessary with a powerful reliable engine (with a fuel range of excess of 1200 miles), meant sailing has always been a pleasure with fast passage times.

In port or at anchor she is extremely comfortable with most modern conveniences and she is almost totally self-sufficient. We found especially beneficial, that the water maker combined with a nature pure water filter ensures that there is always sufficient pure clean drinking water in countries where water is of dubious quality. It is never necessary to purchase bottled water.
With an efficient deep freeze some food can be stored for months if necessary and the full-size Taylors cooker we felt was essential to a well-equipped galley. We looked forward to fresh bread from the oven most days.

The luxury of the folding /removable bathing platform together with the permanent swimming ladder on the stern is useful for activities on the water, including diving, as well as having guests arrive and depart for sundowners when at anchor.

We will be sad to see her go but after many happy years on board we have decided to move on and hope to pass her on to another family who get as much enjoyment from her as we have.
