SY Nahlin, Clarence Graving Dock, Liverpool
SY Nahlin, Clarence Graving Dock, Liverpool
A famous steam yacht from 1930. Edward VIII and Mrs Simpson had a Mediterranean cruise on her (1936) and the only place to put a double bed was the library. Steam turbine powered and repatriated in poor condition after many years in Romania.
The Stanley Dock tobacco warehouse is behind. This is the first view of this particular dock.
The yacht has now been totally restored and converted to diesel electric propulsion(2 x 2MW) in Germany. Initially at the Rendsburg yard and afterwards at Blohm + Voss Hamburg. The vessel was restored to an almost identical exterior but with totally new decks and bulkheads. Internally completely new and modern with full new navigational and communications suite.
