Steam Yacht Nahlin. Designed by GL Watson and built by John Brown, Clydebank in 1930 for Lady Yule. Famously borrowed by Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson for a Mediterranean cruise. She later became the Romanian Royal Yacht and was renamed Libertatea. She has been repatriated by Dr William Collier and is seen on 29-5-01 in the Clarence Graving Dock, Liverpool.
