'Gloriana' in St.Katharine Docks, London
'Gloriana' in St.Katharine Docks, London
The project to build 'Gloriana' was initiated by Lord Sterling, who stated he got the idea for a waterborne tribute to the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee from her eldest son, Charles, Prince of Wales. Lord Sterling financed the estimated 500,000 construction cost of the project. Additional backers included Sir Donald Gosling and Canadian billionaire Galen Weston.

On 19 April 2012, 'Gloriana' was transported by road from the factory to the River Thames, being placed in the water for the first time at Isleworth. The Queen officially named her on 25 April 2012, during a visit to re-open the restored 'Cutty Sark' in Greenwich.
