Steel Cradle for ‘City of Adelaide’ Clipper Ship (The Carrick)

Client: Clipper Ship City of Adelaide Ltd


We were pleased to lend our marine fabrication skills to the new Australian owners of the world's oldest clipper ship (formerly known as The Carrick), in preparation for her final journey from Irvine harbour to her new home in Adelaide, Australia. Our scope of work was the erection and testing of a 100 tonne steel cradle to support the ship and ensure its stability during transportation by barge to London, then onwards by container ship to Australia.
