Even as rather greater sedate and old school than some of the world's biggest superyachts, the 27 metre astoria has simply seen its truthful percentage of rock and roll behaviour. Owned by way of red floyd guitarist david gilmour
the houseboat changed into constructed in 1911 for fred karno and designed so a 90-piece orchestra may want to play on its deck. Gilmour bought astoria in 1986 and converted it into a recording studio entire with three cabins, a kitchen, lavatory and big principal saloon. Components of red floyd's last three albums, along with a lot of gilmour's solo releases, have been recorded on board and the boat is completely anchored on the river thames at hampton in greater london.
