Nandhi : Full Restoration May Result in Summer 2020 Relaunch
Nandhi sat on the hard at the old Hillyard's boatyard for around twelve years until Derek Rennie rescued her in January 2017 and began a major restoration. In the 2017 image above, she's the boat in the poly-tunnel. Derek Rennie has photograph the extensive work done and these can be viewed on Nandhi's very own website.
Nandhi's most famous previous owner is Sir David Mansel Lewis who owned her in the 1970s and 1980s before moving on to the 20 ton Wendy Woo in 1992.
