Picture quiz

We haven't had a picture puzzle for a bit so here's one for you while Tillerman is away.

This lovely classic yacht should be known to at least some of you, so:
1) Who owned her?
2) What is her name?
3) For what voyage is she famous?

Bonus point for naming the kitten.

It's Arthur Ransome's yacht Nancy Blackett which was the model for the Goblin in We didn't mean to go to sea.

Built by Hillyards. Wasn't the kitten called Sinbad?

I thought for a moment you were going to tell us Buff had gone classic, was restoring an old wooden boat and had settled down in domestic bliss.

Far too tasteful for Buff I'm afraid.
