  1. I have a postcard dated 10/04/1912 showing this yacht passing the Titanic at Cowes. The message reads…This is our yacht passing the Titanic before she left Southampton.
    I would be very interested to know who owned this yacht in 1912. Hopefully someone can help.

    1. There were several yachts that went under the name Alberta. The most famous was the one used by King Leopold of Belgium. This yacht was built by Ailsa of Troon and started out life as the Margarita. The yachts official number was 106004. In 1912 the yacht was owned by a Mr. J. D.Cohn of London. The ship was later renamed Surprise and later became HMS Surprise.
