description

This is the Third Edition of this book.

Here is the full story of Britannia, from the plans first sent to shipbuilders in 1939 through her decommissioning in 1997. Used as a royal residence and for the promotion of commercial interests, Britannia sailed more than a million miles since her launching in 1953. The second edition of this all-color book covers the royal yacht's entire history through her final public function, the 1997 handover of Hong Kong, and her current role as a tourist attraction berthed in Edinburgh, Scotland. Included are details of her decor and the strict, not to mention eccentric, rules that governed crew behavior and dress. A wealth of technical data is accompanied by a special message of thanks from Queen Elizabeth to the crew.
