Naming Ceremony at Royal Quays Marina

Naming Ceremony at Royal Quays Marina

Her Grace the Duchess of Northumberland visited Royal Quays Marina on August 11th to perform the official naming ceremony for the Northumberland Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority's new patrol vessel 'St Aidan', which is based at the marina.
'St Aidan' is the third patrol vessel which the authority have based at Royal Quays, having previously berthed the 'St Oswald' and before that the 'Dunstanburgh' with us. The 'St Aidan' marks a new departure for NIFCA in that, whereas previous vessels were steel mono-hulls, the new boat is of glass fibre catamaran construction which will result in faster speeds and reduced running costs. She has also been designed so that, unlike the previous vessels, she can be lifted out by our Wise 40 tonne boat hoist which will save having to use slipways and result in more convenient, flexible and cost effective haul outs for servicing and repair with reduced down time.
