Famous totally refit Camper & Nicholson 127' Classic
GREY MIST, a 127' yacht built by the renowned yacht builders of Camper & Nicholson, is a vessel filled with history and luxury. Launched at C&N yard at Gosport, England, GREY MIST has travelled the world's waters, participated in the largest navel evacuation in history at Dunkirk in World War II and has had aboard a variety of celebrities, business moguls, and lords and ladies.
Able to sleep 14 adults in elaborate staterooms and entertain more with her massive salon, bar, and modern galley, GREY MIST goes beyond just your standard pleasure yacht. From 2003 to 2011 GREY MIST with her previous owner underwent an extensive refit upgrading all her major mechanical and electrical components and restoring all her luxurious accommodations. The current owner has again thoroughly restored this wonderful classic by installing (new John Deere Tier 3 13.5L engines and generators 80kW, water maker, electronics, new AC system (2 chillers), teak and holly flooring, teak decks, cabinets, granite counters and the list goes on and on.
In 1919 the first blueprints for GREY MIST were written up for H.N. Anderson. A year later GREY MIST, #288, was finally completed by the ship builders of Camper & Nicholson at their yard in Gosport. In 1926 Sir John Archer K.B.E purchased GREY MIST and enjoyed her till 1934 when Harry Vincent took ownership. Then in 1939 Lady Maud Burton and her husband Ronald Rothbury Burton purchased her. Unfortunately war soon broke out and in 1939 GREY MIST was requisitioned by the British Royal Navy and participated in the Dunkirk Evacuation and was then used as a signal ship throughout World War II. After the war she was returned to Lady Burton and then sold in Southampton to Albert Batchelor in 1951, who took her out of the British Registry, and later renamed her Marina II in 1966. From there she became hard to follow until the present owners found her in 1993 in Dearborn, South Africa under the name Dorita. Her previous owner saw GREY MIST for the true prize she is and started getting her sea ready and soon she was crossing the Atlantic to America in 1998.Traveling in 1998 around the Cape and crossing the Atlantic, GREY MIST arrived in Texas where she underwent an extensive refit, from 2003 to 2011 and the current owner's restoration from 2016 to the present, restoring her to the brilliance of her past years while modernizing her with today's advanced equipment. Now GREY MIST is traveling to Ft Lauderdale Florida where she will be offered for sale in the yachting capital of the world. Come and see this magnificent restoration of this classic motor yacht.

GREY MIST provides accommodations that rival those of a classic hotel. With four large staterooms each with large walk around queen sized beds, plenty of hanging closet space, and private heads with stand alone showers, eight adults can have the privacy and space that one would expect from such an elaborate vessel. There is even another state room with bunk beds that sleep six, along with a private head and shower, which would be perfect for any children or young adults that join a stay. Each of GREY MIST's staterooms is covered with rich stained wood paneling with elaborate molding, and each private head has elaborate ornate sinks, top of the line electric heads, and Corian like solid surface covered showers. The galley has counter space and modern appliances that rival most houses enabling a full crew and guests to be easily catered to. Probably the most spectacular room on GREY MIST is the main salon/bar. In the center of the salon is a solid wood table surrounded by eight antique chairs. Surrounding the whole main salon are plush settee's with two large flat screen TV's at the end of each. At one end of the salon is the ships bar, with a large Mahogany surface forming the counter, two icemakers, refrigeration and rich stained wood cabinetry for plenty of storage space.
After GREY MIST crossed the Atlantic to Texas the previous owner began, in 2003, a complete refit to restore GREY MIST to the luxury and elegance she was designed with when she first launched. All areas of the boat were carefully inspected and refitted as needed. Below is a short list of some, but not all of the work that has been done.
