    Titles read: "SOUTHEND - CATAMARAN OUT SIZE".

    Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

    Various shots of "the biggest catamaran ever built on our side of the Atlantic" being lowered into the water by a crane on the quayside. 'Morima II' will be sailed round to the Mediterranean by a professional crew.

    General view inside the catamaran where we see a group of people sitting around a table and drinking. On the deck two of the crew fix the main sail into position. Two women standing on the bows of the ship pour a bottle of champagne all over it.

    Various shots of the catamaran making its way out of the harbour and out to sea.
