36' Rhinegold 1911

125,000.00

New Listing. It has been said that some yacht owners aim at speed, but as a general rule fast passages are not required and it is natural that when one goes to sea for pleasure a speedy return is seldom required.

105 years young, the classic, one of a kind, Pacific North West Cruiser, Rhinegold is available for sale.

Her lovely canoe stern leaves barely a ripple on the water as she departs her boat house at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club where she has been moored for most of her 100+ years.

Rhinegold is a rare example of an almost unaltered and intact power boat built at a time when "gas powered launches" were a rarity. Upon her commissioning in 1911, she was a social hit for owner, Maxwell Theolopolis Davies III, son of a wealthy English businessman, who was sent to the logging outpost of Vancouver to manage their business interests along with his own cook and valet.
