Post-war she was renamed ‘Lady Jeanetta’ and travelled around the US before being used as a floating casino in the Mediterranean. In the late 1940s, she disappeared for many years only remerged to the charter market in the 1990s under the name ‘The Classic.’ Fully restored to her former glory in the 2000s and undergoing an extensive refit in 2017 she features her original wooden interiors and much of her original fittings.

Able to accommodate 11 guests in five staterooms, each room and ensuite bathroom features extravagant wooden panelling throughout, reflective of her age. Capable of housing a crew of five to meet your every need, she had also been updated with the most recent navigation and safety equipment.
