The Lady in Red

Seventy years since she stole hearts at a motorboat show, MV Jane is set for a stunning return to the limelight.

Exhibited in 1938, the motor vessel was said to have won a Motorboat of the Year award.

Jane was commandeered by the Home Guard during the war and repainted grey for anti-aircraft patrols on the lake.

Jane has been lovingly restored by our conservation team. Now in her original livery, she is almost ready to turn heads again.
