BTNG BS: New Royal Yacht...! (84* d) RE: BS: New Royal Yacht...! 23 Nov 11


Actually I don't think it'll ever be built. The speculative articles in the press are all based around a campaign mounted by likes of The Daily Stale, The Daily Torygraph and their acolytes, and you know who you are, and they'll be campaigning hard you can bet.

......and speaking of benefit scroungers and tax gougers I see the old royal yacht is finally earning its keep as a tourist attraction berthed at Leith Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh.

all the Royal Yachts have been designated yacht since they were first built, so seemingly accuracy is not been asked for.

The United Kingdom has had 83 royal yachts since the restoration of King Charles II in 1660. Charles II himself had 25 royal yachts, while five were simultaneously in service in 1831. Since the decommissioning of Britannia in 1997 the Queen no longer has a royal yacht.
