Simon Le Bon owned it Duran Duran the group
He did indeed. Undeterred, after the keel fell off, he had it repaired and did the 85/86 Whitbread Race with Skip Novak as skipper, finishing mid fleet.
The yacht ended up being bought by Sir Arnold Clark who subsequently crashed it into a nuclear submarine off the Mull of Kintyre (which Drum also survived).
vaguely knew Le Bon before I met her. She was sharing a flat in Knightsbridge with Yasmin Parvaneh in the mid 80s when they were both fashion models with Models One/Elite. This was when Le Bon was courting Yasmin.
