About Goldrush

An Ex-London Boat Show model, this thoughtfully designed centre cockpit sloop has a good turn of speed, is easily handled, has exceptional sea going qualities and is very comfortable for living aboard for long spells at a time. There are 8 berths in two double cabins saloon and quarter berth which makes her ideal for two families or one large group wishing to cruise in comfort.
Equipment includes a GPS plotter, furling genoa, slab reefing mainsail, a stereo radio/CD player, wind/depth/log instrumentation, refrigerated cool box, electric windlass, propeller stripper, double burner hob, oven and grill and of course hot/cold pressurised water system and Eberspacher heating.
The Standard Horizon 7 inch colour chart plotter makes her a doddle to navigate!
She is also fitted with a stack-pack and lazy jacks to make handling the mainsail a breeze.
She has recently been fitted with a brand new and more powerful Volvo Penta engine and a nice new pair of Lewmar 45ST self tailing winches to make sail handling even easier – the galley has also been stripped out and modernised with all new worktops – all part of the continuous improvement plan (see xxx for more details).
She has also been fitted with the latest Raymarine autohelm system and the controls and plotter have been moved to a pod on the binnacle.
