A PIECE OF MARITIME HISTORY

MOTOR VESSEL SILVER SPIRIT

Built by Millkraft in 1986 she was launched as “Beryl Linda” commissioned for a family to enjoy in Queensland. Name after the wife Beryl and daughter Linda, “Beryl Linda” was only 2 levels and built as a family function boat.

She is remembered by most locals, as was certainly a sight to behold as she moved via road from Taylor Street to its launching location. Many also remember the Beryl Linda on charter for the World Expo in 1988 as it cruised up and down the Brisbane River.
