Capital Marine Services acts as Queen Mary Owners Represenative



1st October 2009 - Having sourced a buyer for the TS Queen Mary, CMS (UK) Ltd has been appointed to act as agents for the new owners.

The TS Queen Mary, built in 1933 in Dumbarton, Scotland, is a well known landmark in London and has spent the last 11 years as a floating nightclub / restaurant / function venue on Victoria Embankment.

The initial challenge was to find a new owner prepared to invest in preserving this grand old lady. The next challenge is to deliver the vessel to her new home - La Rochelle - where she will be converted into a floating hotel.
