The Gypsey Race

Bridlington Harbour Commissioners are delighted  to announce that their bespoke dredger arrived in Bridlington Harbour on Sunday 26th March 2017 after making good progress and anchoring in the Bay, she came through the piers at 13.30 hours.

The vessel was built at the Ardmaleish Boatbuilding Co. on the Isle of Bute.

The vessel will be used to keep Bridlington Harbour dredged to maintain safe passage for all vessels in and out of the harbour and it is envisaged that the vessel will be chartered out to other similar small ports and inlets to dredge their spoil.

On the 31st March, the vessel was blessed by the Rev. J. McNaughton and named by Mrs Lynda Wright, wife of the Chairman of the Commissioners, Mr. Chris Wright.
