Gry Maritha

The Isles of Scilly Steamship Company purchased the Norwegian coaster, Gry Maritha in September 1989, she was named at Kolvereid, Norway in June 1981 after Captain Tor Sevaldsen’s daughter. The Gry Maritha operates an all-year round freight service proving a life line service to the Isles of Scilly catering for the increasing amount of freight required on the Islands. Here we see her arriving at Penzance in September 2010.

The ship, despite her looks, attracted the attention of model boat manufacturer Model Slipway who produced a model boat kit of the vessel.
