Sailing Yachts

Over successive years, we are delighted to have been gifted several yachts to add to the ‘fleet’, kindly on loan from the Royal Collection. In 2010, we took delivery of HRH Prince Philip’s former Royal Racing Yacht Bloodhound, which is now berthed alongside Britannia and, in summer, takes private charters in the Western Isles, crewed by former Royal Yachtsmen.

Visitors can also view The Duke of Edinburgh’s Flying Fifteen keelboat, Coweslip, designed by the legendary Uffa Fox, presented to HM The Queen and Prince Philip as a wedding present in 1949 and arrangements are in hand to restore the International Dragon class yacht Bluebottle, built in 1948, which was a wedding gift to The Queen and Prince Philip from the Island Sailing Club of Cowes, Isle of Wight.
