Launched in 1936, M.Y. Bounty was designed and constructed by renowned British boat builders Camper & Nicholson as a Gentleman’s luxury motor yacht – one of six built as a speculative commission, all of which sold. At 78ft in length and weighing 67 tonnes, her first owner was a gentleman of means who sailed her before and throughout World War II, during which she operated as part of the Inshore Yacht Patrol mounted with Oerlikon Naval Anti-Aircraft gun and was a prominent participant in the landing at Dunkirk (Operation Dynamo). Nearly 80 years and many heroic adventures later this Dunkirk Little Ship is unveiled once more in 2008 after undergoing an extensive but sympathetic refurbishment.
M.Y. Bounty can host up to thirty guests in luxurious surroundings while cruising on the Thames, the South Coast or even further afield.
The interior, Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam, references the timeless elegance of the Art Deco period that gave rise to Bounty, while still encapsulating contemporary luxury. Central heating and air conditioning throughout Bounty makes her ideal for entertaining in Summer or Winter. The reception areas include an interior Saloon and a spacious, exterior aft deck, perfect for watching regatta action from but easily enclosed in more inclement weather.
The main interior reception area of Bounty boasts mahogany panelling, mahogany side boards and inbuilt banquette. A pedestal dining/boardroom table reduces to two fixed mahogany coffee tables with the extra leaf stowing easily behind the banquette. Five elegant dining chairs, contemporary takes on the Art Deco Tub chair are upholstered in matching brown leather and fit around the fully extended dining table allowing eight guests to enjoy a sit down meal. On the facing side of the Saloon sits a scoop-armed sofa upholstered in the iconic Hexagon House chenille by David Hicks.
The entertainment system installed in the Saloon incorporates a 26″ LCD TV, an Ipod dock and a progressive scan DVD/CD player with Direct/Reflecting® cube speakers and a surround sound system customized to the acoustics of the room. A pair of 600w of external speakers are installed on the aft deck with separate volume control. This spacious deck to the rear of the Saloon is as perfect for sunny days on the Thames and long Summer afternoons on the Solent as it is for festive cocktails and canapés at Christmas time, thanks to a removable fitted cover with clear ‘windows’ stitched in and separate deck heating. A skylight cover in the middle of the deck doubles as a sturdy coffee table.
Bounty has fully qualified staff and holds MCA Class VI Passenger License for up to 30 guests for inshore charters. MCA Code of Practice License for up to 12 guests for offshore charters
