PS Medway Queen

REF NR: 330

Medway Queen launched on 23rd April 1924, which was also St. George's Day. From the time that she was built, she was widely recognised as one of the finest examples of Scotland's shipbuilding craft. She was originally going to be broken up, but, following a public outcry, she escaped the breakers at the last moment - to be used under the name Marina Clubhouse on the Isle of Wight in 1966. Medway Queen, during her service as the Marina Clubhouse, well maintained and still looking good. During this time, there were slight changes made to her appearance, the after vents were painted cream instead of the previous light brown and the after entrance was covered.
