Until 1939 brooke was the builder's demonstrator model. At the onset of wwii, she was chartered to the royal navy, then purchased outright in 1941, before being shipped as deck cargo to south australia where it is understood she undertook war service as a support vessel to the australian navy flying boat squadron. At the end of the war she was returned to england and purchased back by brooke marine. She remained with the family company for some years until sold into private ownership. In the late 1950's her then owner re-engined the boat and re-named her icarus ii'. She remained under that name and through a succession of private owners until purchased by the previous owner in november 1997. icarus ii' was road-transported to burnham on crouch and then subject to a comprehensive undercover restoration taking until may 2000. After re-launch (and now reverted to her original name), brooke cruised the east coast before locating to the thames. Her current owner purchased in 2011 and has installed new fresh water pumps, a colin frake faversham stove, her engines have been serviced and the eberspacher heater has been removed, rebuilt then reinstalled. Construction. Carvel planked in oregon pine, a yellow pine akin to pitch-pine but not as heavy and a little less oily. The planking is fastened to steam bent oak timbers with copper nails and roves, all on an oak back-bone. Oak floors. Long external iron ballast keel. Two iron keel bolts drawn in present ownership, found good and replaced. Some planking replaced by priors of burnham in previous ownership and any damaged timbers made good. Raised fore deck with 4 bronze port holes each side. The deck is the original pine deck probably covered with canvas when built as was the traditional way of fitting at deck at this time. In the refit at priors the deck canvas was removed, a ' ply pinned down and overlaid with epoxy and glass cloth to produce a totally water-tight, hard-wearing and low maintenance deck. The sheathing was run right out to the edge and over-lapped down the hull then the varnished mahogany rubbing strake fitted over to seal. Varnished mahogany capping rail all round carried on stainless steel stanchions. Traditional varnished mahogany sky-light in the middle of the fore deck. Varnished mahogany fore hatch with light forward. Manual chain windlass on the fore deck, chain to the locker below in the eyes. The wheel-house is constructed in panelled mahogany with grab rails, horn and search-light on the roof, door each side. The windows are delicately arched in chrome frames. Originally varnished, the wheel-house was painted prior to a proposed med trip in previous ownership steering by traditional spoked wheel and wire cables to a quadrant under the aft deck operating a steel plate rudder.
