Royal Yacht HMS Alberta 

History

The Royal Yacht HMS Alberta happens to occupy a special place in UK’s maritime history. The legendary HMS was a royal paddle yacht, launched at Pembroke, Wales in 1863. The yacht was an impressive paddler and garnered attention for its ease of manoeuvrability. It was especially built for short voyages of Queen Victoria. The HMS Alberta weighed nearly 370 tonnes. The ship impressed with its power – a brutal 1200 horsepower mated to a 13 knot speed. The length, beam, and draught of the ship were 160ft, 22ft, and 8ft respectively – dimensions which underline the fact that the HMS Alberta was a game-changer during its era.

On 22nd January 1901 when Queen Alexandrina Victoria died, this royal ship was used to carry her body from the Isle of Wight to Portsmouth, Hampshire for her last rites. The late Queen had gone to the Isle during the Christmas season after the death of her husband. Eventually, the royal yacht was dismantled in 1912 at Portsmouth. Today, the historic ship is a subject of interesting maritime history, held sacred by nautical experts. It happens to engage a lot of attention among ship model collectors and historians. The heritage ship also makes its presence felt at the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, London.
