HMY Victoria and Albert, which was designed by the naval architect William Symonds, laid down in Pembroke Dock, and launched in 1843. Functioning as a royal yacht of the sovereign (it was the first steam powered royal yacht), she made twenty voyages before she was scrapped in the 1860s. Lithograph after a study by Nicholas Matthews Condy (1818-51), Plymouth-based artist whose place of residence equipped him for providing studies of several detailed prints of yachts and ships.
