Have your say

The recent stories and pictures here of the superyacht Shemara, currently being refitted at Portchester, prompted artist Jeff Bradley to get in touch.

Jeff, who was born in Portsmouth but now lives in Dorset, was commissioned to paint Shemara in her Second World War rig when she was an anti-submarine training ship with the Royal Navy.
