45ft Alfred Burgoine of Kingston Steam LaunchRestored in the winter of 2003/04.


Built in 1901 she was used as an umpire's launch because her speed. For 10 years she languished in a warehouse until her current owner bought her from our brokerage and put her through our workshops for a complete overhaul. Both the steam plant and engine where removed, rebuilt, repainted and new fuel tanks installed. The deck caulking was renewed and repairs to the woodwork completed. All fittings were removed and polished, the paint and varnish was scraped off and reapplied. With the engineering work complete she was given river trials on the Thames at Windsor and now resides on Lake Windermere, Cumbria.
