WILLIAM ALLCHORN was a purpose built pleasure boat, commissioned by the Allchorn Brothers of Newhaven, East Sussex, in 1950 and funded by the Ministry of Defence Compensation Fund as recompense for ENCHANTRESS, lost during the Dunkirk evacuation. WILLIAM ALLCHORN is constructed of wood using double-diagonal planking, and is almost certainly the largest beach-launched pleasure boat still in service. She is licensed to carry one hundred passengers and continues to ply her pleasure cruising trade from Eastbourne to Beachy Head each summer season.
