Ships History

The WESTMERE has a proud place in the history of the Henry Robb shipyard, as she was the very first order to be won as a new build vessel.
This order from Bromports was for a Steam Tug, and she was indeed the first in a long lineof tugs built in the Leith Shipyards.

She was built in dry dock as the very first ship to be built in the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb and she was the first in line of a long and distinguished list of fine tugs built in Leith.

WESTMERE was ordered from the Bromport Shipping Company, who in fact were a well known shipping group, one of many based in the port of Liverpool, England. They operated as such from 1916 to 1923.

Bromports were a subsidiary of  Lever Brothers started by William Lever.

This is one of the ships which we will re-create by re-lofting her lines and using some of her original drawings we shall have a CAD model of her which can be rendered to be as close to a photograph as is possible for now.

We try here to give as full an account of her history as time and research permits, if you know of missing info
or you have any photographs of her, then please get in touch and we shall update her story as we go along.
