Stuart said “Our Company relies on Alicat Workboats to consistently produce dependable, well built, best in class boats which are paramount to the developing offshore wind farm sector. This third delivery in as many months is further testament to our growing business relationship with the Gardline Group”

He also paid tribute to Steve Thacker and his team and the craftsmanship that went into building each vessel and looked forward to taking charge of the Dalby Trent, which is earmarked for immediate employment.
