Bounty[2] (popularly HMAV Bounty)[FN 1] was built in 1977/78 for the movie The Bounty starring Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins. She is now a tourist destination in Hong Kong, China.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The hull is constructed of welded steel oversheathed with timber. For many years she served the tourist excursion market from Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia, before being sold to HKR International Limited in October 2007.

She is now a tourist attraction (also used for charter, excursions and sail training) based in Discovery Bay, on Lantau Island in Hong Kong, and has an additional Chinese name 濟民號[3] (Cantonese Jyutping: Zaimanhou ; Mandarin Pinyin: Jiminhao ; English: Bounty).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. The ship is not entitled to the use of the prefix 'HMAV' as it has never been commissioned into the Royal Navy. Here 'HMAV' is treated as part of the popular name, and not as a ship prefix.
