Flintshire-built 'Kathleen & May' schooner on sale for £2 million

One of Britain's most historic sailing ships is for sale with a £2 million price tag. The 113-year-old tall ship Kathleen & May, built at Connah's Quay, has already attracted interest from the Far East.

Unless a buyer can be found in Britain, the schooner - which featured in the opening of TV series 'The Onedin Line '- could be forced to up anchor and leave.

The deadline for serious bidders comes later this month. People on both sides of the Mersey channel are hoping she can stay close to her original home.
