âBrookeâ was built in 1937 by Brooke Marine of Lowestoft as a prototype estuary and river cruiser, and to a smaller configuration than Brooke cruisers built previously. Construction is of Oregon Pine on Oak and originally âNumixâ engines were fitted. Subsequently twin BMC Commander diesel engines were installed driving through Borg Warner âVelvet-drivesâ.
Until 1939 âBrookeâ was the builderâs demonstator. At the onset of WWII, she was chartered to the Royal Navy, then purchased outright in 1941, before being shipped as deck cargo to South Australia where it is understood she undertook war service as a support vessel to the Australian Navy Flying Boat squadron. At the end of the war she was returned to England and purchased back by Brooke Marine. She remained with the family company until sold into private ownership. In the late 1950âs her then owner re-engined the boat and re-named her âIcarus IIâ. She remained under that name and through a succession of private owners until purchased by the previous owner in November 1997. âIcarus IIâ was road-transported to Burnham on Crouch and then, undercover, subject to a comprehensive restoration taking until May 2000. After re-launch (and now reverted to her original name), âBrookeâ cruised the East Coast before locating to the Thames. Her current owner purchased in 2011 and has installed new fresh water pumps, a Colin Frake Faversham Stove, her engines have been serviced and the Eberspacher heater has been removed, rebuilt then reinstalled. She is a delightful classic.
