Star' was built in 2000 by Ferguson Shipbuilders Ltd, Port Glasgow,
for the Northern Lighthouse Board, and is the fourth ship owned by the
Board to be given that name.
Star' is 1,174 Gross Regd. Tons, length 51.5m, beam 12.0m,
Star' used to be based at Stromness, but Walter Lyle Hume tells me
that the Northern Lighthouse Board base at Stromness has now closed so I'm
not sure where the ship is normally based now, possibly Oban.
In this picture 'Pole
Star' is seen at Leith Western
Harbour on a fine day in March 2007.
