THE BRITISH POWER BOAT COMPANY
HYTHE - SOUTHAMPTON - HAMPSHIRE
The British Power Boat Company was the 'cradle' of the British power boat industry. Today it is hard to imagine that during the 30s it was the most progressive boatyard in the world leading a revolution in the power and design of small boats and playing a significant role during the Second World War. Today these achievements are almost forgotten and the site is now a housing estate built on land reclaimed from the sea. CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO BRING UP THE VIDEO.
