PRINCESS MARINA was built as a fishing vessel in Cornwall c1898 though the name of the builder has not been established. She is of carvel construction, larch on oak and has an inboard diesel engine by Gray Marine model 3/71. A previous owner restored the hull, fitted her out and rigged her as a 'Plymouth Hooker', completing the task in the late 1970s. Her current owner has transported her to Woodbridge in Suffolk and is restoring her.
