Q.e.d.

Whilst browsing in a second hand bookshop yesterday, I picked up a book on aviation, and it mentioned that in the 1930's, Fokker designed and built the "Q.E.D." - a art deco inspired yacht. Powered by 3 engines, 1 diesel (for cruising) and 2 aero engines for high speed.
A photo showed a rather weird looking craft, mentioning that she was lost after a fire, but no other details.
Anyone know anything about her? (Wish I'd bought the book now!)

She had the same lines as the new passenger cats of nowadays (albeit she seems to have had a monohull). Designed & built ahead of her time by 70 odd years.
