The subject of the talk is:
LILIAN – gentleman’s motor yacht 1916 – Dr Scott and Mrs Hilary Pereira
Learn about this exceptional vessel which is now aged 102 – includes financial scandal, naked ladies, mistresses and uniforms as well as dereliction and repair. The focus will be on the social history but will include other maritime aspects as it is believed Lilian is the oldest surviving diesel yacht worldwide and is one of the earliest motor yachts ever designed. At one point the yacht was moored just up from Tamesis Club.
