SD Victoria
« on: July 21, 2010, 09:27:27 am »

I saw this photo elsewhere but no details were attached. Will somebody tell me what her role is?

Cheers,

Jim,

Thanks for info. I tried a search but came up with very little. I see she is listed as "Training and Support" but as her bulk and deck capacity are nothing spectacular and yet she can accommodate up to 88 pax, does the training role come first? 

Regards,

Hi Barry,

Further to the builders site info you are correct. She is designed as a replacement for SD Newton to support training operations.

According to British Warships and Auxiliaries 2010/11 she has a complement of 16 and accomodation for 72 but I suspect the builders site is more correct for some reason ;)

All the best,

Carl

I am intressed in tugs and finding alot of information on this forum as I will try to build my first tug very soon, but I am not understanding how she is a anchor handling vessel with the back end without a roller ?

Maybe I am not seeing thing correct.

Wondered about that myself. There is no reference to a stern roller in the detailed spec.

She is NOT a tug.
She is a Training Accommodation Ship.
As a direct replacement for SD Newton
