CAROLOE ANN OF HAMBLE is a twin screw motor yacht of double diagonal teak and oak construction and is fitted with twin Perkins SM6 diesel engines. She was built in 1958 by Graham Bunn of Wroxham to a design by R M Martins. Although based on a Norfolk Broads cruise design the vessel was designed for the sea and built to the personal preferences of George  Formby and his wife Beryll, her first owners.

She was sold in 1962 to an anonymous buyer for over £5000 and her name was changed from LADY BERYLL 2 to CAROLE ANN OF HAMBLE.

The vessel has been completely rebuilt over the last 20 years by her current owner.
