Blue Nymph : Have you seen this boat ? 


Blue Nymph : Where Is She Now ?
Lucie Flowers recently posted (February 2018) on the Classic Hillyard Wooden Boats FaceBook page that she was trying to find out what became of her late father's yacht. An internet search reveals little about Blue Nymph's current whereabouts although she is believed to be in Spain. If you can help, please get in touch.
