I spy a livery change opportunity here if my long term investment pays off in the very short term (unlikely as me going to the Moon)  ;)

First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2 in her new life, in Dubai, in January 2020 and August 2022.

Pricing looks a bit optimistic to me. Old boats are generally very cheap and unfortunately (for the owner) I suspect the QE2 history is worth very little to most prospective purchasers. Interesting though and there must be others out there.
