The Yachts




An excellent yacht, she is the former Vanguard, purchased by David Gotze and Michael Cranitch in August 2014. As Vanguard, she proved to be a weapon, winning line, overall and PHS honours in the CYCA Ocean Pointscore (OPS) when brand new. She also wrapped up the 2009/2010 OPS.

With a string of top ten Line Honours finishes in the Sydney Gold Yacht Races and increasingly competitive placings in the previous Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races Triton and her team is able to show the capabilities of the boat and will be looking to continue this form in to the 2018 season.
