Successful rescue mission for historic yacht Amazone

Saving Amazone

Nicholas Edmiston and William Collier of classic yacht experts G.L. Watson & Co. have completed the first stage in saving another important historic yacht. Having previously worked together on the groundbreaking restorations of Blue Bird, Nahlin, Malahne and Cacouna they had been keeping an eye on the 1936 Thornycroft-built 39Metre Amazone for several years.

For over 20 years she had been a houseboat on the Seine and the time had come to intervene if she was ever to return to sea. In an ambitious 2 week program the yacht was acquired, prepared for towage and taken to Le Havre where she was loaded on the 214M DYT semi-submersible Yacht Servant and delivered to Falmouth where she was unloaded and transferred to Pendennis Shipyard yesterday morning.

Achieving this tight schedule in heavily regulated waters relied on the detailed collaboration between Mike Herrebrugh of Sevenstar Yacht Transport and William Collier this included the charter of four specialised vessels on the Seine and the heavy lift cross channel transport.

Mike Herrebrugh of Sevenstar Yacht Transport commented: The arrangements for the tow in France were extensive and very complicated. But it is amazing to be trusted by Nicholas Edmiston and William Collier to handle their project, which is clearly a labour of love, to preserve an historic piece of yachting.

William Collier of G. L. Watson added: These are complex projects where you need the support of strong partners who understand your requirements and who remain focused on it throughout. Mike Herrebrugh is that partner and this concludes our third successful project with Sevenstar in the last 12 months. !
