For the village in Iran, see Suhaili, Iran.

Suhaili is the name of the 32-foot Bermudan ketch sailed by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston in the first non-stop solo circumnavigation of the world in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race.[1] She was built in India in 1963 from a William Atkins design. Suhaili is one of a number of prestigious vessels to be moored along the route of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Due to her size, she will not be part of the flotilla, and will instead be moored with other vessels at St Katharine Docks, in a display known as the Avenue of Sail.[2]
