The new Britannia
« on: Jun 07, 2021, 03:44 PM »
Fascinating, lengthy article here explaining about the new royal yacht.

One interesting nugget of information is that they hope she will restart the ability for the UK to build cruise ships, even if only small ones to start with.

Worth a read, and all makes rather more sense than you'd believe if you just read the hysteria in the newspapers.
