HMY Victoria and Albert II

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)



HMY Victoria and Albert, a 360 foot steamer launched 16 January 1855, was a Royal Yacht of the Sovereign of the United Kingdom until 1900, owned and operated by the Royal Navy. She displaced 2,470 tons, and could make 15 knots on her paddles. There were 240 crew.


Victoria and Albert II was scrapped in about 1904.


The El Horria was built to the same specifications for Isma'il Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt in 1865 and is the oldest steamship afloat.
