Mandriella : French Canals to Italy
The photograph shows Mandriella in the French Canals on the way to Italy; a grand adventure undertaken by Chris & Viv Nutton between 2011 and 2014. They refitted her prior to the return trip with the intention of it being their farewell voyage to Mandriella; she's now up for sale.
She was originally named Doreen Mary, which appears to also be the name of her first owner Doreen M Ongley. Stephen James renamed her Mandriella when he took her on in 1967.
