Malahne was owned for over 20 years by Legendary Hollywood producer, Sam Spiegel (African Queen, On the Waterfront, Bridge on the River Quai and Lawrence of Arabia, amongst many other ). The 1973 film "last of Sheila" was set aboard her and she was a truly lovely elegant yacht. She was then sold and at some point in the early 1980s was "modernized", if that's the word. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder and "chacun a son gout" and all that, but how could anyone do that to her, removing every vestige of what made her special and turning her into something that, in my mind at least, is really quite exceptionally ugly. Last summer she was for sale , listed variously for €550k or £550. I believe she's now arrived at Pendennis for a refit. Hopefully they will wind the clock back and she'll leave looking more like her original C&N design.
