The beautiful steam yacht Amazon is currently visiting Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour as the guest of the Maritime Museum. This stunningly elegant vessel was once the property of Arthur Lowe (Captain Mannering of Dad’s Army fame) and she used to be aregular visitor to Ramsgate in the 1970’s. Some may remember the many riotous parties held onbaord Amazon with some colourful characters including John Le Mesurier (who lived in Ramsgate) and other members of the Dad’s Army cast. Amazon will be in Ramsgate until the end of June, so make sure to visit before then..!
