Meanwhile, other ships recently repaired include two containerships from Safmarine, the Safmarine Nimba, and the Safmarine Mono, the cruise vessel Thompson Spirit, the containership Schelddiep, and the Ashabi, which is in for long term fire-damage repairs.

The yard is also working on the cruise vessel Rotterdam, which is being converted to a museum/conference ship for the Port of Rotterdam, and the 60m yacht Islander. Steve Davis, who has recently been working in Spain, has been appointed as an additional Ship Manager. A further 12 apprentices have commenced there training, they will spend the first year in the training school, from there they will spend six months in each department, finally choosing which trade they would like to specialise in.
