1262 was one of 235 sixty foot Admiralty pinnaces destined for general service during the Second World War and was built by Walton Yacht & Launch Company at Walton-on-Thames in 1942. Her wooden hull has a hard chine and, originally, she would have had either three Perkins SM6 engines or three Gardner 6LW engines, linked to three propellers. 1262 is now a museum boat, based at Irvine. She came under new ownership in January 2007 and the aim was to move her to Hartlepool and restore her to operational condition.  This vessel was deconstructed in July 2011.
