Tugs built in Leith

The Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb were to become specialists in the design and build of many tugs over the years from the smallest to the very largest.

The list above from an advert shows the shipyard under the name of Robb Caledon of course, as this was the trading name of the company after "joining" with the famous old Caledon yard of Dundee. The above list only showed Tugs built in Leith.

ULUNDI Ship No 78 perhaps the oldest remaining tug built in the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb, launched in 1927. The ULUNDI is not the oldest surviving Ship as it would appear that the Irish Light Ship ALBATROSS built in 1924, still survives and is berthed in Dublin Harbour Ireland. The ULUNDI may be the oldest surviving tug built in the yard to still be around.

Now a museum stand in South Africa where she spent her time as a tug/pilot ship.
