ALBATROSS “Lost now found again”

With the news from one of the crew of the tug Sea Trojan, that was towing the ALBATROSS to her new home on the River Medway, close to the historic royal dockyard at Chatham.

The “oldest” surviving ship from the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb is to be used as a Houseboat/bed & breakfast on the river, what a great use for an old ship that has not only stood the test of time but the worst weather over many years that the volatile Irish sea could throw at her.

We wish her new owner well and hope to get some photographs of her to show on the website where you will see many updates on the ships built in Leith and so much more.
