Synopsis: This Official History of the Royal Yacht has the full unprecedented support of Her Majesty the Queen and HRH Duke of Edinburgh. As part of his research the author has interviewed a cross section of those involved in the story of this great ship from members of the Royal Family through to the junior Royal Yachtsmen as well as those who built her and those involved in her preservation. Moreover, many of the photographs have been made available by the Ministry Of Defence and Royal Archives including a number of informal photographs of the Royal Family.
This is the only fully comprehensive book on the subject featuring exclusive first-hand accounts from members of the Royal Family, politicians, designers and crew
Written with the full support of the Royal Family and presenting numerous unpublished photographs and a full history of the yacht's career
Published to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the launch of HMY Britannia·
Copiously illustrated with over 200 photographs and artworks, many of which are in color
In addition to her many and varied official duties Britannia provided the Royal Family with a place to relax, in particular the Royal Family's annual cruise of the Western Isles and was also increasingly used with considerable success to promote British industry abroad. She was decommissioned on 11th December 1997 and subsequently preserved in Leith outside of Edinburgh in Scotland
