This was my fathers yacht many years ago, I had a lot of happy childhood memories on her, she was a twin screw version, twin keel
rampart, was originally commissioned for the Earl of Shrewsbury in 1954. She really was a classic
beauty, both my father and now Tabitha have now passed away, was so sad to read this. I would really be interested to know now a year on if she was ever salvaged??? Any information would be grateful.
