This beautiful Motor Yacht has been lovingly restored over the years by the current owner. As ever, there is still more work to be done.
The vessel has good provenance, having been involved in clandestine operation around the Skandinavian coast during WW2, until she was scuttled by the Nazis. She was recovered by the Royal Navy and put into service as the Postal Boat between Edinburgh and The Shetlands, before she was bought by the family of Sir Alec Guinness.
The configuration of the interior is unique, as the owner's intention was to operate her as a fine dinning, cruising vessel. The professionally equipped galley is separated from the main saloon by a piano, which forms the centrepiece of the art deco interior.
The business was successfully run for a short period and turned a tidy profit, before a road traffic accident forced the owner to stop. It is possible that the boat could be purchased as a 'going concern' to the right person.
The wood carvel hull is sheathed in copper, making her extremely durable. A survey in 2018 identified only two planks that were soft and were replaced at Dennett's Boatyard.
The twin Gardner engines were thought to have been fitted in 1947. They sit grandly in the engine room, and start on the button.
The boat is currently stored on a winter mooring at a cost of £320/m. BSS expires September 2023.
