New Workboat MEGAN M

Gareloch Support Services today named their new workboat MEGAN M at Rhu Marina, following an almost total rebuilt of a former Port of London Authority salvage vessel. The conversion, by Mustang Marine in Wales, took 8 months to complete, and resulted in a very modern, well-fitted out little vessel. Almost the only thing remaining of the original vessel is the hull, which has even been fitted with a new bow to meet the requirements of GSS. All underdeck spaces have been fitted out to her new owners' specifications, with new Daewoo main engines and auxiliary machinery, and well fitted out accommodation for her crew. MEGAN M is due to return to Wales next week, where she will be employed on a long-term contract for QinetiQ on the Aberporth Target Range.
