• Short Summary

    Europe's largest passenger catamaran makes maiden voyage from Greenwich Pier, London.

  • Description

    No titles. Europe's largest passenger catamaran makes maiden voyage up River Thames.


    General view of catamaran standing at Greenwich Pier. C/U of the name 'Suerita' on the side of the craft. A small crowd watches as the London Tourist Board Easter Princess, Christina Hasler, walks forward to cut the tape across the passenger entrance of the boat. People applaud and Christina steps aboard to be presented with bouquet of flowers by a little girl. Christina bends down and kisses the little girl.

    General view of people boarding catamaran. Inside, on the lower deck, we see people standing about near the bar. A man is poured a glass of punch by a stewardess at the bar.

    Travelling shot taken from the catamaran as it leaves the Pier. C/U of Christina Hasler and two other girls - probably runners up in the Easter Princess contest - waving to people. Several shots of the catamaran moving along the River Thames towards Tower Bridge. People standing on the open top deck wave to the camera.
