You may well ask!
Twenty odd years ago I nearly bough a Princess motor yacht previously owned by Nigel Mansell. In the end, common sense won and I bought a house in Watford.
However, I think it was then that the seed was sown and a continued and reoccurring dream was born to own a boat.
For the past six or seven years this desire has been getting stronger. Websites have been visited. Catalogues poured over. Blogs read and re-read. Tim & Pru’s and Tim & Shane’s adventures closely followed, until, eventually, a plan was hatched to buy a boat with a view to taking her across the channel and cruising the waterways of Europe.
It’s obviously a good idea, because I have had no objections from Nicola – the Admiral – or Alfie – the ships dog.
