Hi All

Just for interest a Huntsman 28 is up on Apollo Duck, I think its rather cheap considering her alleged provenance!!!

Only yield when you must, never "give up the ship," but fight on to the last "with a stiff upper lip!"

There is a Shakesperian Lady Class boat in Hartlepool Marina called Luctor-et- Emerigo has anybody any idea of what the name is/ or means sounds French/Belgian, as she was an Army boat is it a Regiment motto, a place of Battle etc. Thank You.

I found the following on the web.

The Latin motto of the province of Zeeland, "Luctor-et-Emergo" translates to "I struggle and emerge"

   Slightly difrent spelling, but whats an 'I' betwen friends!!

To expand on the above statement

Motto of the Dutch province of Zeeland to denote its battle against the sea.

Rather fitting for an Army vessel!

S'funny, from Latin it translates as "I shine and arise".....kind of!

Lucitor et emergo does anyway!

Hi Christian,

Is this any relation to the following boat advertised on the boats for sale page of this site- Eala Bhan - 45ft “Shakespearian” Class General Service Launch.

The boat in Hartlepool is listed as 46'5" but in most respects it looks similar. I have very little knowledge with regard to army boats so maybe a master class from somebody please.

Luctor-et- Emerigo




Eala Bahn



Tramontana just read your post in detail and realise both boats are Shakespearian Class but now that I have typed this I am going to post it anyway.

How about more detailed information from somebody?

Well BoatBird I know nothing about Latin, or what ever it is I just copied and pasted from the web.

    So don’t blame me!!

  I'm to thick to know Latin so I bow to your obvious expertise. (no im not flirting. This time lol)

(Perhaps the discrepancy is the translation from Latin into Dutch then from Dutch to English)

Hi d-zine, The blurb on the bmpt ad was written by Philip Simons and gives accurate specs etc, however I think the Shakepearian Males Class differed from the Shakespearian Females Class but I am unsure how exactly. Don has a book with a list of all the names of both classes, which hopefully he can reproduce here for us, unfortunately the book does not give much more information about these boats other than the list of names. I'll do some digging.
