Wooden Ships Comments on this Camper and Nicholson Motor Launch

Built in 1917 by Camper and Nicholson, this elegant motor launch has all the hallmarks of her era and is a simply stunning motor yacht.

Rebuilt by the Leopoldo Shipyard, Lake Como, between 2007-2010.

After arriving in the Mediterannean in the 1940’s she has had a varied history including being used as a coral fishing boat in Sardinia complete with hyperbaric chamber, and in 1976 she was a luxury transfer vessel for club Med guests and also featured in a notable French film.

In 2007 a major professional rebuild commenced under the current owners with no expense spared.  The hull was stripped bare inside and out, any necessary hull repairs completed and a complete new deck structure fitted.  All systems, machinery and equipment have been replaced to subtly introduce the modern world without destroying her patina.

A superb and unique motor yacht full of history, pedigree and class.
