Ship Breakers - HMRT Golden Cross

DRB Marine Services Ltd

In April 2012 the vintage tug HMRT Golden Cross got into difficulty during high winds, which caused her moorings to break. The 58-year-old vessel drifted ashore in the bad weather and came to rest in a rocky inlet near Shepherds Point, Ardentinny, Argyll.

She was towed out of the inlet the following day and, after being lashed to the Serco tug SD Resourceful in the middle of Loch Long, she was taken to a temporary mooring near the mouth of Loch Goil. But when she started to take on water, the MOD beached her in an attempt to stop her sinking.

15 year old 7,409 GT Lysblink Seaways cargo vessel is going to be scrapped by DRB Marine Service

Built by Scott & Sons at their Bowling yard, Dumbarton in 1955, the 132-ton tug was in danger of being scrapped  when a group of Argyll residents decided to rescue the vessel and bring her to Ardentinny. She reached her new home after a 650-mile passage from Falmouth, which took her first to a mooring at Holy Loch Marina.

The vessel was finally recycled in our facility in 2014
