Seen at Hull marina 18/08/12 - appears to be tien in with SYNTAN and the Beverley Barge Preservation group.

Possibly an old pilot cutter?

Or Perhaps a workboat from a Trinity House vessel??????

I doubt if we will find out, but she certainly looks interesting.

Found this :-

Also part of the Society’s fleet is the ex-lifeboat Mermaid, previously a tender to a Trinity House vessel and kindly donated to us by Gardline, the international shipping and marine exploration company.
She is 30’ long with a 6’6” beam and was built in South Korea by Hyundai with a Perkins 4108 engine. We have refurbished Mermaid to act as a pleasure craft to take up to 8 passengers and 2 crew.
From April 2012 she will be taking trips from Crane Hill Wharf head of the Beck (close to the Forrester’s Arms) at ½ hour intervals most weekends down to the lock at the end of the Beck and return.

Had a feeling she might have been Trinity House.

Nice to have it confirmed!

She must have come from the Hyundai-built T.H. buoy tender MERMAID of 1987, now Gardline's OCEAN OBSERVER.
