It's the £300,000 super yacht with no mod cons
A super yacht with a difference has been officially named at Plymouth's Mayflower Marina.
Despite the £297,000 plus VAT price tag, the owner does not get a stateroom, a powerful engine, sophisticated electronics or even a comfortable bunk.
Instead, Integrity is simply a stunning 43ft gentleman's yacht, and a throwback to the Victorian era of craftsmanship, with gorgeous woodwork, gleaming varnish and polished brass. Built by Bere Ferrers-based Stirling and Son, she is guaranteed to turn heads wherever she sails in the world.
Will Stirling, 33, went to Eton College with Prince William and built him a 12ft traditional wooden dinghy as a wedding present.

The hand-built rowing boat, worth around £6,000, was later donated to the school.
Mr Stirling built Integrity himself with a handful of seasoned craftsmen.
Based on an 1880 design and made of larch on oak with copper and bronze fittings, she is described as a classic cruising racer.
Other statistics include an 11ft beam, a 7ft 6in draft, a displacement of 21 tons and a sail area of 2,000 square feet.
Mr Stirling, from Tavistock, presented commemorative plaques to shipwrights Ted Luck, Richard Shilling, Andy Cornish and John Gallagher.
