Devon to get new tourist attraction thanks to local legend

by Staff

Devon is getting a brand new attraction thanks to a local hero. A special boat that looks like a sailing picture will soon be seen by the water on the Barbican in Plymouth.

Kevin Preston, who loves to draw and was in the army, has made one of Plymouth‘s favourite pictures of Mark Ormrod, a hero from Plymouth.




Now Kevin is making a beautiful picture on a fishing boat. The boat belongs to Neal Stoneman and it’s an old fishing boat from 1961. Neal found this special boat in Wales and brought it to Plymouth.

Kevin, 60, and his friend Neal, 59, want to make the boat something people in Plymouth can enjoy. They plan to have the boat at Guy’s Quay, next to the Three Crowns pub, by April.

Kevin said: “I think this is a unique project, I have never seen any boats painted like this before. When the boat is on display at the Barbican, people will see the sea scenes and they’ll love it.”

“I think it will be one the best boats in the world. We get all the cruise ships into Plymouth from all over the world, they walk around the Barbican and film everything. This boat could end up being shared all around the world. We’ve already had lots of attention from people all across the globe, I’m over the moon with the lovely comments.”
