Hermann Goering’s yacht Carin II
Read all about Hermann Goering’s splendid yacht, the Carin II at. It seems she survived the war virtually unscathed, and was requisitioned as a spoil of war by Field Marshal Montgomery who passed it on to our Royal Family who used it for their holidays for 15 years.
From this distance in time is seems to have been an rather unusual kind of Royal Yacht, but perhaps things seemed rather different 60-odd years ago.
The story of Carin II became even stranger – for she was later owned for a time by the journalist at the centre of the fake Hitler diaries scandal.
