Survey supports Boris call for new Royal Yacht

Tuesday 14 March 2017

 "Boris is batting for Britain and is right to raise the issue of commissioning a new Royal Yacht.” Said Saga’s director of communications Paul Green.

“Saga recently polled its customers asking if they would support the commissioning of a new Britannia to be used by HMQ and her successors in the course of their Royal duties promoting British interests across the globe.

“Of those that expressed an opinion the majority were in favour.  Indeed, out of the 9,998 respondents to our poll only 39% were not in favour of commissioning a new ship. One in five had no strong view either way."
