New national flagship becoming a reality

It’s good to see that Britain is forging ahead with its world wide export boost

More information is emerging about the new national flagship seen as the successor to the Royal Yacht Britannia which was decommissioned as long ago as 1997. It seems like yesterday.

Britannia was basically used as a royal yacht by the Queen and members of the royal family but after its decommissioning was not replaced. In the 21st century it is considered that a royal yacht is no longer appropriate and indeed would not be used that much as travel tends to be by air today.

So the new national flagship will be used to develop British trade and industry and no doubt be put on show at every conceivable opportunity and is expected to host trade fairs and diplomatic meetings. The ship will nevertheless still be a part of the Royal Navy and be crewed by it.

The new vessel is expected to cost some £200 million and it is hoped that it will be built in Britain – indeed it would be flying in the face of upholding British trade if it were to be built somewhere else. The tendering process is now about to begin and the project will be confirmed once that has been completed. It is expected to use the latest British design expertise and of course be green technology.

This nice new ship could be in service within about four years. It promises to be an interesting project and certainly as things stand a fairly unique vessel in more ways than one. Downing Street has issued a picture of a mock up.
