Ships History

Once a ship had been built and launched she then had to be out-fitted, and then complete sea trials
before being handed over to her new owners, who would look to have that ship at sea, as long as possible to pay for her build costs and of course to make the company good profits.


To this end one company may have had no requirement for a particular ship after a time and would then sell her on just like any other disposable commodity.
Hence a ship may have had a few owners and would go through many changes and names during what was hoped for a long and successful working life.

The small coaster DUNNET HEAD was a sister ship of MARWICK HEAD which had both been ordered by A.F.Henry & MacGregor Ltd, 

To be continued.


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.

:lol: I sailed on the Dunnet Head as an SOS in 1959.
On a dark winters night in the North Sea we were sailing from London to Inverness with a cargo of cement we were in the midst of a sever gale when we heard that the Broghty ferry life boat had been lost.
It was a sad event and we could do nothing to assist as we were to far from the incident and we were slowed down because of the very very heavy seas.
