This tug boat, (at time of writing registered in Guernsey), was the official tug to the Royal yacht "Britannia".
The tug was the first to be commissioned with the then latest Crossley gearbox. The tug was found in a dilapidated, sunken condition in the Bristol channel and through a long, arduous and almost single-handed labour it was saved and restored to it's present condition.
It was berthed at Kinsale from 2001 to 2002 and received some help in it's ongoing restoration from local and retired seagoing personnel. In August 2002 it moved back to Southampton from where it was visiting other nearby ports
