In 1994 an ambitious project to build a replica of His Majesty's Britannia gained Her Majesty the Queens blessing. Her hull was commissioned and built, however the project was never completed and Britannia sat unfinished for nearly 8 years.
In late 2011 her hull was acquired to be used for maritime education, charity fundraises, and a whole range of charitable causes. Thus "K1 Britannia" was born with the goal to complete the rebuild of the vessel to the same standard and specification of the original, and to reclaim the history of this iconic vessel.
Britannia's hull was towed from Norway to the Isle of Wight in February 2012, where she was lifted by an Apache floating crane, and placed in her cradle so that the designing, engineering, and refitting work could commence.
