Built as a private motor yacht by William Osbourne in 1937, GERFALCON served as a Royal Navy Auxiliary patrol craft during the Second World War, having been requisitioned in June 1940 from her owner at the time, Commander V Searles-Wood.
The vessel was first registered in 1938 by the Registrar of Shipping at Littlehampton. Since bought by her present owner she has been lovingly restored to her original condition and in 2012 was selected to take part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
