SOUTHERN QUEEN was built in a barn at Westham village, near Pevensey Castle, by the Pragnell family in 1950. She was taken almost two miles by road to her launching site in Norman’s Bay, approximately four miles east of Eastbourne. She is clinker built and is one of the largest vessels of this construction to survive and still remain in commercial service. She is licensed to carry seventy two passengers, and makes pleasure cruises from Eastbourne to Beachy Head on an annual basis. Ongoing restoration is carried out on her as required.
The Strategic Developement Fund awarded a grant of £1200 towards 3D scans of Southern Queen and William Allchorn, supported by Winter & Co Marine Ltd
