I googled her for and this is what I've come up


Seaforth Conqueror, a powerful Offshore Support Vessel (OSV), built in Aberdeen in 1976.

The 224 ft long Seaforth Conqueror was originally used as an anchor handling vessel for North Sea rigs. In 1987 Seaforth Conqueror was sold to Norwegian operators and two years later re-sold to British owners Toisa Ltd (Sealion Shipping) of Farnham, Surrey.

Under her new name Toisa Conqueror, she spent several more years in the North Sea and was scrapped in Mexico in 1999.


Hope this helps.    Nice model by the way. Well done

hi there
 
That's a nice build of the Seaforth Conqueror.  How did you find fitting the prop-tubes in the hull?  I found that when I came to fit them in - the one which I built - I had to modify and alter the hull  where they fitted.  
 
Also, if you have independent motors control and the bow thruster working it is  a relay manoeuvrable model
