"William" is an absolutely gorgeous "Royalty" boat, and its owner Tim has recently fitted it out as a 12 berth camping boat, giving more than a hint of a return to the basic boating of the 1970s, when such things were commonplace.
"William" was built in 1931 by W J Yarwood and Sons of Northwich, and actually shares this builder with both our "Sickle" and our "Flamingo". However "Sickle" and "Flamingo" are 1936 builds, making them mere mere babies by comparison.
