UK to fight for Britannia

ADVERTISEMENT

Royal Yacht Britannia, the 413-foot vessel launched in 1953 that served the British Royal Family for 44 years and now sits as a tourist attraction in Scotland, is being considered for service again as Britain navigates its post-Brexit future.

Conservative members of parliament are pushing for the yacht to be recommissioned to help the country secure trade deals, according to news reports. The parliament is expected to address the issue this month.

Plans call for the royal yacht to be relaunched through private donations. It was decommissioned in 1997.
