SEA TROJAN and barge

A small tug was noted this morning, bringing a barge to Greenock. She was the former harbour tug SEA TROJAN, built in 1962 by the John Lewis and Sons yard for Aberdeen Harbour Board.

After leaving the barge at Greenock, SEA TROJAN, which is now owned by Heysham Boat Charter Ltd, left immediately for Liverpool. SEA TROJAN is 26.85 metres long, and 177 gross tons. She retains her original 6 cylinder National oil engine, which gives her a bollard pull of 14.5 tonnes.
