Built 1938 at Selby 91tns for the Admiralty and carried the registration C 10 until 1958 when she was re-named DESTINY. Sold out of the Admiralty in 1963 she then went to Husbands shipyards and Star Tugs. Then passing into private ownership she now carries the name of her present owner THOMAS a bussinesman who uses her as a private motor yacht. Seen here visiting Avonmouth in 1996 I belive her home port is now Swansea.

I see two names on the bow - THOMAS and DESTINY. Can't quite make out the word in front of DESTINY, is it "ex"?
