Patricia was actually THV Patricia. That is a Trinity House Vessel. The oranisation looks after lighthouses light buoys and wreck marking in English waters. Have a look at Trinity Houses web site for much more information. Just enter Trinity House on Google. Their main operating base is in Harwich, withnheadquarters at Tower Hill in London.

Hello Mark,

Yes, there is a new Patricia. The one you are interested in was sold in the 1980's, and here is a photo of her. If you google THV Patricia and look on images you will see the new one together with this picture, and there are also photos on this forum - look in the gallery using the search function.

Howard, that photo is of the new "Patricia" - they have accommodation for 6 passengers and you can do trips on her. Sounds quite tempting actually but a bit pricy.

The old "Patricia" - plenty of photos around - was the Trinity House flagship and used to spend half the year carting the Elder Brethren of Trinity House around on their annual inspection of English lighthouses, lightships, buoys, etc.

Mark, the original poster, mentioned that his relative served on Patricia in the 1960's to the 1980's and the photo I posted was the Patricia which was built in the 1930's and eventually sold in 1982, so it fits right into the correct timescale. It became a nightclub somewhere in Scandinavia, and was replaced by the modern Patricia which, as you mention, in addition to her Trinity House Duties, takes passengers during her trips around the UK coast. She was built in 1982 to replace the vessel shown in the photo.



Regards

Sorry Howard, that isn't the old TH Yacht Patricia - in fact I'm not even sure if she's the new "Patricia".

Here is a photo of the Patricia which finished in 1983. I Googled her up and she is now supposed to be a restaurant in Bremerhaven, registered in Netherlands Antilles. Tried to google the restaurant but got not result.

The photograph posted #4 by Howard is the new Patricia. There is no confusion there. Just the way the post was worded.
