I am pleased to present a recent photo of Golden Opus taken during her latest cruise in Indonesian waters.
I created Golden Opus to fulfill my design goal of creating the ultimate ‘family cruising yacht’. At 72 feet (22 metres) in length and with a modern high aspect ratio self tacking rig, I felt this was the largest yacht that an experienced yachtsman could handle (with a couple of paid hands involved to allow limited chartering). With my partners, Howard Kilroy and Andrew Winch, and their families we cruised Golden Opus from New Zealand through the Western Pacific to European waters, well-proving my original design concept.
Golden Opus and her sister Volare have many successful ocean miles under their keels.
