Troon Tugs

The Troon Tug Company fleet has recently been expanded with the acquisition, just a few days ago, of the former Serco tug SD SPANIEL, now rendered surplus following the arrival of new tugs from Damen. SD SPANIEL is seen here in Troon Harbour with her original name overpainted, undergoing refurbishment prior to joining her compatriots RED EMPRESS and RED COUNTESS. It is believed that when she enters commercial service, presumably under a new name, SD SPANIEL will be involved in the timer trade, towing barges on the west coast.
