DINAH was built in 1887 by Gill & Sons of Rochester as a Thames Sailing Barge, not built to trade but as a pleasure vessel and is one of the earliest surviving examples of a barge yacht. She is a vessel of timber construction with a Ford diesel engine.
Her first owner was the Honourable Reginald Thomas Dudley Brougham of London. Her registered owners are: 1888 Reginald T. D. Brougham, London; 1890 Arthur G. Potter, Islington, London; 1891 Ernest Cecil Latter, Corinthian Club, Piccadilly, London; 1904 Aubrey Stuart, South Hampstead, London; 1907 Lilian Macmahon, Ramsgate; 1911 Frederick G. Ensor, City of London; 1913 Howard Hollingsworth, North Lowestoft; 1919 Matthew L. Crane, Ipswich; 1921 Gerald N. Newton, Piccadilly, London; 1923 Garnet J. Oswell, Stratford, Essex; 1929 Capt. H.E.D. Cullen (M.C.), Surrey; 1933 Louise M. Milward, Old Windsor; 1947 Rupert Brooke, Lowestoft; 1952 Sam Street, Lowestoft; 1954 M.W. Pratt & M.B. Prichard; 1979 Aidan & Yvonne de la Mare; 2006 Richard Johnson; 2013 P. Knopp & J. Armour-Marshall. By 1979 Dinah was lying derelict in a lighter in Sharpness, Gloucestershire. She was then purchased by Aidan de la Mare and his wife Yvonne, and taken by land to Dock End Yard, Ipswich, where initial restoration work was undertaken by Roy Woods before she moved to Chelmondiston and, later, Southwold. Restoration work was finally completed in June 2006. From 2006 onwards Dinah was moored at Iken on the Alde, Suffolk. In 2013, after further repairs in Maldon, Essex, she was moved to London with her current owners.
