Kristen and Bill Golden have always set their course for "Life Beyond the Horizon". Kristen and Bill have traveled the world constantly reinventing themselves through new destinations, new adventures and new challenges.
Twenty-three years ago, Kristen and Bill, reached their new Life Beyond the Horizon buying the 600 ton Nantucket Lightship WLV 612, preserving the Lightship and transforming it into a luxury yacht. Today, only twelve of the original 179 US lightships are still afloat and the 612 has survived as the last fully operational US Lightship, cruising ocean waters and guiding all who seek out the enduring values and traditions of the Nantucket Lightship to Life Beyond the Horizon.
By founding Lightship Brands with former American Express executive, Carolyn Shapiro, Kristen and Bill are once again reaching out beyond their horizon to offer a unique, Nantucket Lightship WLV 612 inspired collection of apparel and accessories that reflect the enduring values and historic traditions of the Lightship's "Beacons of Hope" and the mystique and adventure of destinations that await yet unseen in the future.  
Join us on this journey and signal clearly to all that you have charted your own course for Life Beyond the Horizon.
