As you will see from the previous post by Ixion, she is an anchor handler and a very nice looking design when she was built, by the newer standards and lines we build these days she is really and 'old-school' design but in the day when built was the top of the range. Seaforth had many boats and in they time they worked mainly out of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft (which were mainly Gas related regions) and also Aberdeen, Peterhead (Oil related regions).

Would it be possible to put some photos of the model in question as it will be nice to see a modified model of an original build.

Thank you,

John.

You're sure John ?  I was thinking her as a pure supply, no winches, no roller, no deck equipment

If you are at home you can answer to mystery tug and take your turn back  ;)

Not sure it will be easy, maybe not place enought for a big propeller (AHTS) instead of the small for supply

An AHTS is a tug with powerfull engines and big propellers, a supply is just a cargo ship with small power engines and small propellers.

Then if you look at the stern there is different room for prop : a pure supply hull form is quite flat and an AHTS one is deeper to accept the bigger propellers.

Only few pure supply hull forms are ok to be converted in AHTS.

Whouah , free style built ! 

This hull just looks like a flat barge.  Far from AHT hull and even ORSV, hope the price of this "thing" is nice with good bargain !
