Conversion Completion

Published On: 7th October 2021

Red Lion Marine is happy to declare that it’s first workboat conversion is officially completed! Red Lion Marine has successfully spent the last 12 months refitting it’s ex Pilotage Vessel ‘Osprey’ which included a number of works compromising of a new crew mess & galley, upgraded navigation suite, renewed wheelhouse internals and a hull sand blast with subsequent remedial works. A vessel with a new lease of life deserves a new name to which the Osprey will now be called ‘RLM Luff Way’, named after a local safe passage between the scars at Redcar.

Manager Nathan Hobday said: “I’m proud to welcome the completed vessel into the Red Lion ranks as our primary work boat. This vessel is a prime craft for safety and standby work on a river that is boasting with potential. The addition of facilities onboard means our crew can remain comfortable and alert throughout the duration of the shift, increasing the service to our prospective clients. Furthermore the conversion works have been completed both by the RLM team and local contractors, keeping local businesses in work during this difficult climate, a good job all round.”
