  3. #HISTORY#
    The boat was sold to the Duke of Westminster, on February 11th, 1914. The Belem undergoes profound changes to be convenient for its new vocation: big luxury yacht. In September 1921, after less than four years of navigation in the colours of the Duke of Westminster, the Belem is sold to the Irish brewer Ernest Guinness. The boat is renamed the Fantôme II. Following the death of Ernest Guinness (1939) and the Second World War, the vessel was laid up in the island of Wight. The Fantôme II is bought in 1952 by the Italian foundation Cini to serve as its training ship. In 1979, thanks to a financial help from Les Caisses d'épargne, the Belem ownership became French once more.
