Broker's Comments

Why Blue? well when she was in her Swedish Navy colours, warships kept bringing their guns to bear on her when she entered harbour. She couldn't be red otherwise yachtsmen would use her to navigate by. So BLUE it is then! At least you will never lose her in a busy marina.
Moving on to her decks - Anyone for tennis? Playing the noble game on deck you will have plenty of room, however stock up on tennis balls or employ an olympic swimmer as a ballboy!.
As it stands at present she has flexible accommodation for a couple of platoons of soldiers should you wish to invade the Isle of Wight. The gas turbine engines had to stay with the Swedish Navy and were replaced with a pair of 440 hp Volvo diesels. Her main generator is actually bigger than her engines (in fact it's bigger than my car!). The scale of the over-engineering on board needs to be seen to be appreciated. Call to book a tour of duty.
