I think the other vessels are the Thorne built KP series for the Association of British Tool Makers, ending up with the Ministry of Public Works in Indonesia. The ones on the right will be 3 of the tugs. There were supposed to be 5 identical tugs, but the two ahead are very different.

I have a photo only of KP VIII, from a Dunston brochure.
Was working at King's Lynn while these were fitting out, so missed them.

Reports indicate she has changed to CT OXTON, assumed for Carmet Tugs.

There is Basic and there is Basic, this design is extremely Basic to say the least and looks like it was designed by a 12 year old, one Hull and stick a box on top of it :D, the Penny counters must have had control of the Build. What you don't need on a vessel is sharp corners whether it is on the superstructure or the Galley table.
