Royal Yacht Bloodhound : Feasibility Study

Royal Yacht Bloodhound
The Royal Yacht Bloodhound arrived in the Port of Leith in Edinburgh in July 2010 and is moored alongside the Royal Yacht Britannia and has become part of the royal sailing exhibition.

GVA RGA have been involved with the Trust from the beginning assisting with business planning and catering concepts. We are delighted to have worked with them again in projecting incremental visitor numbers that would result from the added attraction and explore extra income generation from charter opportunities.

Britannia has been in Edinburgh since she was decommissioned in 1997, and has become a hugely successful attraction. Since opening to the public, Britannia has enjoyed excellent annual visitor numbers (over 250,000 annually), winning numerous awards and accolades, the most recent being: Scotland's Best Visitor Attraction 2009, UK’s Most Coach-Friendly Visitor Attraction 2009; the Condé Nast Johansens UK’s Most Excellent Dedicated Venue and the Silver Award for Green Tourism.

To the yachting enthusiast Bloodhound needs no introduction. Originally built by Camper and Nicholson in 1935, the Bloodhound is one the few authentic classic 1930s racing yachts left. Her uniqueness and attraction lie in the fact that she was one of the most successful racing yachts ever built and became the Queen and Prince Philip's personal yacht during the 1960s.
