Robertson and Caine Montevideo 43

  • 43′ - 13.10m
  • 1988
Good As Gold is a classic 43' centre cockpit sailing yacht in beautiful condition, set up to comfortably take you blue-water cruising absolutely anywhere you may want to go. To quote the current owners "as first time sailboat boat owners and offshore cruisers, she is an awesome and forgiving offshore vessel".

Featuring an owners double cabin set aft with private settee, dressing table with en-suite head and shower, plus a 2 berth forward cabin and a single sea berth aft of the nav station, and with all sheets and winches by the helm, she is suitable for either a couple or a family to head off on an adventure.

The saloon has seating for 8 comfortably, a drop side table with built-in bar, curved liquor cabinet, and excellent headroom for spacious living with plenty of bench space in the galley for cooking and entertaining. Lots of air flow with 10 opening hatches, including one in each head, and storage galore in both the galley and the cabins, including one wet locker.

She is a production boat of moulded GRP launched in 1989 at Robertson & Caine Yachts (S. Africa) and rigged as a masthead sloop with a four (4) cylinder diesel engine. Originally owned by a Cape Town business owner and his wife, this vessel placed in the top 3 in a number of long offshore races (up to 3,600 miles). The owners then cruised her in 2009 from Cape Town to Brazil, and made their way to British Colombia, Canada, where the boat was sold to the current Canadian owners in April 2010. They have cruised the BC coast and the South Pacific, to her current location in Vanuatu where she now lies ready for new owners.
