Her builder Peter Hendel owned her for about 13 years and cruised mostly around New Zealand. Her second owner was also a New Zealander and owned her from about twelve years during which time she cruised the Pacific Islands before heading for Thailand via Indonesia and Malaysia. We acquired her in 2003 and sailed around South East Asia from our base initially in Talaga Harbour in Langkawi and then from Boat Lagoon in Phuket. In 2007 my wife and I set off from Phuket towards Oman, stopping in Kochi, India for 10 days before sailing the final leg to Muscat.. Good Hope remained in Oman for the next 3 years while we cruised the Oman coast and up into the Arabian Gulf, via the Musandam Peninsula, as far as Dubai. We then kept her in Fujeirah, UAE for a year before heading to Bombay and then on to Uligan the most northern of the Maldives. We cruised the Maldives eventually leaving Gan, their most southerly island for the Solomon Atoll, part of the BIOT. From there we sailed back across the Bay of Bengal to Indonesia and Thailand. In 2014 we shipped her, on a yacht transport vessel, to Marmaris in Turkey in order to avoid having to sail past the Somali coast where pirate activity was out of hand. Three years were then spent cruising the Med and Europe as we worked our way towards the UK, finally arriving in Fowey in May 2017.
