Henk,

The photo which is show the Deirdre is on charter to Klyne & Winnie Tugs (Lowestoft) Ltd. I guess that this would have been early 90's. I think after this she was under the management or Targe Towage based in Dundee and i think that they have now purchased her?

I am sure that there will be someone with the records to confirm.

Darren.

From Equasis ...

1418171 Ship manager TARGE TOWING Mountboy, Montrose, DD10 9TN, United Kingdom. during 08-1991
0052131 Registered owner STRATEGIC OPERATIONS 19, W. Water Street, Sag Harbor NY 11963-0008, USA. before 1980

I have an idea that Barry Bramhill (Grimsby) was her skipper at some time, if anyone remembers him.

DEIRDRE and COLLIE T ar ethe two tugs normally kept on station at Dundee by Targe Towing.

I do not know whether they now own DEIRDRE outright or whether she is on bareboat from Strategic Operations Ltd, though quite possible as still Nassau registered.

Darren,

Yes, she was in undercharter with Multraship from 1987 till 1989. I pictured her from aboard LEENDERT MULLER on our way to a harbour assistence in the Braakman harbour.

I think she was owned by Nassau Towing (a daughtercompany of N.V.Scheldt Towage Co. S.A.) , registered by Strategic Operations.

She was indeed a Scheldt Towage tug, worked in Sharjah Port for a while, when I first joined them in 1980.

That is correct. Nassau Towing was a part of Schelde Sleepvaart Bedrijf NV - Antwerpen and also owned CECROPS, CHINDIT, MARGUERITE, MURGEN, SAMAND and SCALDIA.
