1980- after completion of "Around the World" cruise, in late fall, yacht MIRANDA is settled in JKM "Gryf".
1996- this is after 16 years of inactivity  in JKM "GRYF", Management of Central Sea Museum in Gdańsk, was not interested in acquirement of the yacht along with its equipment.
1997-2002 search for an sponsor and patron of MIRANDA. Former commander of JKM "GRYF"- Jerzy Abacjew successfully acquired yacht for Sea Museum of Gdynia. However, because Museum is not able to secure adequate localization (until end of construction of new building of museum)- temporary guardian of yacht MIRANDA became producer of air-conditioning devices- VBW Engineering.
Yacht MIRANDA has been transported to VBW Engineering territories in Gdynia at Chwaszczyńska Street and displayed after pedantic restoration.
MIRANDA has been saved from the roughest storm.
On July 19th, 2002 VBW Engineering signed an agreement with Museum of Gdynia about preservation and care of yacht MIRANDA until the day of opening new functional building of museum, where yacht MIRANDA will be part of permanent exhibition.
".I don't know, what to say in such distinct moment, which not only is a meaningful and symbolic card of history of City of Gdynia, but also big part of my life associated with sea and people of sea."
