Miss Enfield is back!

As we mentioned, when the Enfield Cycle company was broken up in 1967, Enfield Precision Engineering was sold to a Greek millionaire that moved it to the Isle of Wight and concentrated on the production of powerboats. The most celebrated one was "Miss Enfield 2". With its V12 engine it took the world by storm winning six of its first ten races and placing second in three. It won the celebrated Cowes-Torquay race. Notice the gun next to the Union Jack!
Apparently the current owner is thinking about restoring it for next years' edition of the Cowes-Torquay race. Good luck! This is what it looks like today.
