    I can only find this one poor image of the MY Endymion. She was 138' long LOA and belonged originally to Sir Herbert Samuelson who was the first post WWI governor of British Palestine among other things. By 1939 she belonged to Dutch interests and was named Gaviota. It's likely she was requisitioned by the Axis in WWII and probably was sunk by the Allies. I would appreciate any info on this vessel and would love a good picture or two posted if any exist. Endymion among others.PNG

    We have an album of many photos of her in the 40s I think she ended up in S America owned by Arturo Lopez as Gaviota (he had several Gaviotas)

    Referring back to the Brightlingsea photo at the top of this thread, I have never seen a photo of the "SY Karen" which is to the right of Endymion. She was built in 1923 by Camper & Nicholson and looks very similar. She is nowhere to be found in the 1939 Lloyd's Register Of Yachts. She is listed in the 1931 Lloyd's. I am thinking she must have met an early demise. If anyone knows anything of the fate of "Karen" I would be most appreciative to know. By the way, she had oil engines and was not a steam yacht.
