Built originally in Jularbo in north Sweden and launched in 1905 St David worked as an icebreaking tug in the hostile waters of the artic.
She underwent a major refit in the early 1960’s during which her steam engine was replaced by a diesel. She remained in service until the 1980’s when she was purchased by an elderly gentleman for conversion to live onboard.
During his extensive refit work in which the new superstructure and funnel were added and the entire hull re- plated the large diesel was again replaced with a more economical Scania. His work was of such a high standard that the insurers classed her as new build in 1992.
It was in 1999 that she was brought back to the UK where an extensive refit costing £80,000 was conducted. The entire interior was stripped bare and all systems reinstalled from scratch. The hull was shot blasted and then painted to commercial specifications.
The current owner bought her in the summer of 2006 and has undertaken extensive renovation work, both mechanical and structural
