This tug looks as if she has been really well maintained and is in regular commercial use. She is currently used for pleasure trips and has been hired for various TV companies Uk and abroad. She has a recently renewed PLA liscence to carry 12 passengers. She currently takes passengers to land at the Red Sands Forts in the Thames Estuary. Her top deck being the ideal height for this use.
Taken out of the water in August 2011 for hull maintenance. The engine has also been serviced. £7000 spent on maintenance. The owner pointed out that she would be great for fishing too.
The owner informs me that this tug has a massive range, allowing her to travel to New York!
Note that one of the holding tanks is for blackwater and the other for greywater. They are quite new and make of fibreglass. The owner infoms me that she weighs 61 Tons with empty tanks and 80 Tons with full tanks. The owner currently rents a mooring for £30/week.
|Total # of berths||2|
|Heads||1 heads (Sea Toilet)|
|Pressurised water system|
|Hot water system|
The accommodation is currently arranged and fitted out with passengers in mind. However the lowest deck could be altered, without interfering with bulkheads, to provide further berths. Also the owner suggested that the huge aft locker could have the coachroof raised to provide a spacious aft cabin.
The galley could be modernised to accommodate more worksurface and white goods, giving her a liveaboard capability. She is very cosy and benefits from radiators which are heated by a diesel system.
