Blue Water Cruisers19879.45 m/31 ft
The Golden Hind 31 is a deeply traditional Maurice Griffiths design which has proved to be a reliable and sturdy offshore cruiser with easily handled seakindly performance. The GRP hull is finished with a traditional wooden deck and superstructure, providing the incomparable ambience of a classic yacht without the excessive maintenance of a wooden hull. The moderate draft also allows unfettered cruising in shallow coastal waters. This excellent example has been really well maintained and carefully upgraded and is well worth a look.
