Bought on eBay for £510 back in 2011, the Snapdragon 23 boat's restoration is now complete

It was a proud moment when the PBO Project Boat Hantu Biru took to the water for the first time in more than 20 years.

Here’s a video of the historic moment! Filmed by David Harding and Kevin Slater, edited by Marco Rossi, who also created the soundtrack.

Find out how Hantu Biru sails and how much the two-and-a-half year restoration really cost in the September issue of PBO, which goes on sale this Thursday, 14 August 2014.
