Golden Vanity

Golden Vanity is now overseen by the Trinity Sailing Foundation , a charity whose aim it is to provide sail training, especially for youngsters who may not otherwise get the opportunity.The Golden Vanity Trust operate with Trinity Trust. Part of our brief is to raise money to help support youngsters who wish to sail on The Vanity.

The Rig

Golden Vanity is rigged now just as she was when she was launched early last century. She has a ‘Gaff Cutter’ rig. It is a very versatile and powerful rig, easy to handle in light airs and strong winds, making her an ideal vessel to learn about traditional sailing methods.

Where does she sail?

Golden Vanity’s home port is based in Brixham where she spends her sailing season exploring Devon, Cornwall, The Channel Islands, and Brittany.


Below deck Golden Vanity has been fitted out for her modern role. She has accommodation for seven guests and two crew members, has a saloon area, a galley, and a toilet (the heads).

Included in Your Voyage Cost

All meals and refreshments, life jackets, bedding, are included and waterproofs can be hired by the day (although oilskins are provided for free on Duke of Edinburgh voyages).


Golden Vanity is available for whole boat charter during the sailing season for up to seven guests.
