Endeavour, sailing with its crew.<br />
<br />
One of the world's most famous and best-loved racing yachts which starred in the Dunkirk evacuations and was once bought for £10 after falling into disrepair has gone on the market for a whopping £15 million. <br />
<br />
The 130ft schooner Endeavour was built in 1934 for British aviation pioneer Sir Thomas Sopwith in his failed attempt to beat a rival American crew in the America's Cup, sailing's most historic and reputed competition.<br />
<br />
It fell into repair following WWII and eventually sank on its mooring in the late 1970s, but after the historic yacht was snapped up for £10 and lovingly restored it has gone up for sale for £15 million.
