Interesting that she sports a three tone steam whistle yet there is no steam line visible. Either its a fake or its powered by compressed air.

Thank you eddyw. I've googled her brochure (full of spelling errors etc, but stunning nevertheless) and learned a bit about her. Regards.

Surely the masts are way out of scale (too tall)?

A supurbly detailed retro design spoiled by the modern comms domes?

Interesting 'floating gin palace'. Someone trying to 'ape' the old 'VICTORIA and ALBERT' , Navy blue enamel paint on hull , tall masts, buff funnel with black top? Anyway, whom owns her . None of my mates !

Perhaps this is as much as her owner can cough up....the recession must be hitting hard, sob sob!

Could it be the Millionaire James Dyson = who has just moved all his manufacturing out of the UK! I know he has just spent a fortune on a classic "steam yacht"

Hi Waiwera
No it is not James Dyson who to be fair has much more taste, if you look in this section in the last weeks you will see that he has just taken over his beloved 3 year restoration of the Nahlin after spending £23m, and what a great looking job they did.

I agree Mike, there is absolutely no comparison between this vessel and the beautiful lines of Nahlin, although as previously mentioned, i'm not keen on the grey funnel!

Regards, Ken H.
