[COLOR="Blue"]Dan, what a marvellous photo and vessel. I have never seen anything afloat so beautifully proportioned and elegant.
This vessel really has some amazing history but first, take a look at this surprising photo on a pdf file ..... HERE .
The condition before restoration was disgraceful!
Even the [COLOR="Red"]original[/COLOR] designers, G.L. Watson of Liverpool, were commissioned for the restoration and their webpage describes it as ''The Ultimate Classic Yacht Restoration''.
I wouldn't argue with that.
See the story from their angle HERE and watch the video too. Stunning!
