Hebridean Princess docks for annual overhaul
The Hebridean Princess, a small luxury cruise vessel owned by All Leisure Cruises, was originally built as MV Columba, a vehicle and passenger ferry for David MacBrayne - now known as Caledonian MacBrayne.
The vessel docked at Garvel over 15 days for annual overhaul. During this time, the Hebridean Princess’s anchor windlass was fully stripped and overhauled and the anchor chain was calibrated and then replaced. Garvel carried out a series of steelwork and pipework repairs, followed by the inspection of the rudders and tailshaft. Further overhauls were completed to the vessels hull valve and a hull and full superstructure HP wash and paint was carried out.
