    Default Yachts in 'When Eight Bells Toll'?

    Just watching this now, not seen it before, actually quite good.

    Love the classic lines of both of the yachts featured in it, have managed to find that the 'Firecrest' (real name 'Tavit') was a 60's Fairmile (looks like they still go for good money), but cant find what the larger yacht, the 'Shangri La' is, anyone know out of interest?

    Sorry cant find a picture of her online to include.

    Shangri-La's real name was Maureen Mhor, built by Yarrows on the Clyde in 1961. Now called Camara C and chartering mostly in the Med.

    The Firecrest is now on offer for charter in the med. She is my favourite boat of all time.

    I may be wrong, but I'm not confused.
