Artist's Description

This steamer was built ninety years ago by George Brown & Co, Greenock. When begun she was named ‘Samuel Green’ and was intended for the Royal Navy: but she was completed in 1919, and launched as “Ocean Mist”.

For 60 years “Ocean Mist” served as a trawler, mine sweeper and pleasure yacht: when owned by the Guinness family, she ferried racing cars to France and Italy. She retired about 1980 and was brought to Leith, where the Ocean Mist was a floating bar for nearly 20 years. She was derelict for a while, but freshly painted and renamed, The Cruz is now a floating restaurant on The Shore.

It’s amazing what a ship will do.
