Ever fancied owning a piece of History ? Hyperion was the smallest vessel to reach Normandy on D-Day under her own power. On the 19th August 1944 at 1551hrs she took his Majesty King George VI and Mr Anthony Eden, then Foreign Secretary on a tour of the Mulberry harbours. She was later involved in the transportation of German officers from Alderney to Guernsey, after the surrender of the Germans in the Channel Islands. Buy now and join the Trafalgar day celebrations in style and then moor up at the Festival of the sea. Just dont upset your neighbours with the Bren Guns !
