Found- Henry Robb “Oldest” Ship

It looks like we have managed to track down what may well now be the oldest surviving ship built in the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb.


She is the Lightship ALBATROSS Ship No 30 and built for the Irish Lighthouse commission in 1924, with the help of a German lightship enthusiast we know now that she is still afloat and although without her light lantern she is at a berth in Dublin, Ireland. We hope to have some photographs to show soon.

We will bring more info soon, and you will be able to find out more about this 87 years old ship on the website at www.leithshipyards.com where a lot more info and photographs have now been put onto the site.
