Pilot vessel Bembridge being restored in Poland

Check out these panoramic photos of 1938 pilot vessel THPV Bembridge, currently under restoration in Poland, where she is to become the offices of a company, Magemar Polska.

She has had quite a history: for example she was involved in the Normandy landings and, following her career as a pilot ship, became a sea training vessel and later got involved in oil exploration in the North Sea.

East Coast yachties know here well as she was the Essex Yacht Club’s clubhouse at Leigh on Sea for many years. It’s great to see her being cared for.

See her current owners’ extensive website:
