This historic motor yacht, probably the last of its kind, was built in 1892 for King Leopold II of Belgium,  according to a design by the Dutch naval architect Gerard De Vries Lentsch. Later named as “Brave  Mollie” the vessel served as the model for the Royal Yacht “Piet Hein” built for Queen Juliana by the  same designer. She is a famous ship, illustrated by the fact that she has been used for film and television pictures in  which stars such as Eddie Constantine and Brigitte Bardot acted. The unique atmosphere on board  even inspired the famous Salvador Dali for one of his paintings. In 1954 the vessel was equipped with  a 360 Hp Deutz diesel engine in Holland although, this was later upgraded again in 2015 for a modern  MAN 6 cylinder diesel of 380 Hp. Back in the Mediterranean, she spent a long period cruising the French Cóte d’ Azur. In 1979 the  “Brave Mollie” was renovated at the well-known Amsterdam shipyard “Het Fort” in order to maintain  her magnificent condition. After sailing these last years in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean the yacht  was taken to the Spanish shipyard of “Vatasa” in 1987 where the most important renovation was  carried out over a period of two years. The romantic character of the original construction, dating  from the end of the 19th century, was fully preserved. The “Forever” combines the romanticism of days long past with modern comfort, and this is what  makes cruising with her such an unforgettable experience.
