1878 to 1931

The pedigree of shipbuilding at the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb goes back much further than from the time the company started in 1918.

Due to mergers and some good fortune and of course being in the right place at the right time the shipyard of Henry Robb was able to take over some very fine shipyards right next to them, the pedigree of those shipyards went back into the previous century.

With the last of the shipbuilders to be taken over came some very fine shipbuilders from the firm of Ramage and Ferguson a shipbuilder of World renown for the building of superb fine vessels.

One of the classic vessels built at the Ramage & Ferguson the 5 masted KOBENHAVEN sail training ship for the Danish Navy which is still the subject of a maritime mystery having just vanished in 1928 somewhere in the South Atlantic Ocean.

She was only one of many fine vessels built at the Leith Shipyards of Ramage & Ferguson who in fact built and launched some of the finest ships to ever grace the seven seas, including some of the very best of the magnificent Steam Yachts from the Victorian/Edwardian era.
