History

Built in 1936 by Camper & Nicholsons at Gosport, BOUNTY is a motor yacht of teak construction with twin 4L3 Gardner engines. Her Second World War service at the Dunkirk evacuation is recorded in detail as her owner, Lt. C A Lundy RNVR remained in command. After the war a succession of owners cruised in her but her condition declined, although she took part in the 1985 Dunkirk reunion. She lay unused for two years on a slipway at Torpoint, Plymouth until discovered there by her present owner who completely refitted her for cruising in home waters.
