The Port of Inverness had an usual visitor this week in the shape of 37m Fair Lady classic motor yacht. The vessel was stopping over in Inverness for a few days before departing for the west coast via the Caledonian Canal.
The Fair Lady was originally built by Camper & Nicholson in the UK in 1928 and was subsequently extensively upgraded in the early 2000s though she retains many of her exquisite period features, alongside the latest communications and technology. Stunning original features include the 1920s ship’s wheel and brass binnacle which sit alongside the very latest navigational equipment in the wheelhouse.
Commenting, Port Chief Executive Sinclair Browne said, “It’s great to see such a classic yacht in Inverness and cruising around the west coast. She is a reminder of how elegant cruising was in days gone by.”
