LEONID comes from a time when ketches were first adapted for engines - with shorter masts and heavy shallow keels. She was built when cars were only just invented - so is a very early example of a motor yacht. She was built by Hart Harden House at Hampton Wick near Hamptom Palace - and was not sold privately or registered until after she had passed into the hands of Camper Nicholson - they registered her for the first time in 1908. Camper Nicholson transformed her into a gentleman's motor yacht, selling her in 1908
