Daphne III is a superbly preserved, vintage, Thornycroft Cruising Launch. Built in 1923, carvel, mahogany on oak,  Builders number 1856. She had a major refit in 1992 and has been regularly yard maintained.

Offering two comfortable berths, heads, and galley she is a real eye catcher. 

Approximate Dimensions

Length Overall  30ft
Beam  7ft 6ins
Draft  2ft 3ins
Displacement  2.9 tons

Her tabernacle mounted mast could be used to carry a simple sail arrangement. 

She has a two-berth cabin with standing headroom under the skylight, a drop-leaf table, two lockers (one hanging), and a bulkhead-mounted Taylor paraffin heater. Forward is the fo'c'sle with Porta Potti, wash-basin, chain-locker and spares-rack. 

The Galley is fitted with a two-burner Taylor paraffin cooker with pressurised fuel tank (which also serves the cabin heater) in a locker below on the port side, and sink-and-drainer over a locker on the starboard side, and is sheltered by an extension of the deck above the cabin. 

The varnished mahogany engine-casing doubles up as the "kitchen-table". 

Aft is the large 9ft by 6ft cockpit. 

Under the small stern-deck is the 12-gallon LRP-petrol tank, and the 10-gallon flexible water-tank piped to the sink and wash-basin. 

Daphne is powered by a Morris Navigator Mk 2 petrol engine (no. 496, 1498cc), driving her original stern gear through a 2:1 reduction gear-box. 

Currently used on the River Thames, she has a Boat Safety Certificate until 12.07.03
