SEA PRINCE is the first of a pair of cruisers (sister vessel SEA QUEEN 1946-1970) built after the Second World War by A.G. Ward of Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich.

Head of the fleet, she was a high end luxury hire vessel with 8 berths, 2 toilets, running hot water fitted and a full size galley, cooker and sink.

SEA PRINCE is now used as a houseboat by the owner, who rescued a striped and unloved superstructure in 1988. Apart from the wheelhouse canopy the hull and deck are origional in design.
