Motor yacht “Vanessa” was built by Graham Bunn of Wroxham Ltd. in 1953.

In 2013 we completed a three year refit and she is now based on the Thames and her home port is London.
You will find her at most of the Classic boat shows in and around London.

We know she left England some time between 1965/70 and went to France, unfortunately this part of her history is a bit vague.

We also now know that she was originally named “Träumerei II”, then sold to Sir William Steward who named her, we think, “Golden Dawn of Wroxham”, she was then taken to France.

From France she was moved to Spain, and in 1984/85 went to Mallorca, where the new American owners named her “Heather Brooke”.
In 1990 she was sold again to Vanessa Branson, daughter of Sir Richard Branson, and she was renamed “Vanessa’s Folly”.
