Built in 1961

Built in 1961 , the former SUN XXIII was built for ship towage uses on the Thames. Today in the UK there are only two remaining sun tugs , these being Suncrest (the largest) and Kingston (ex SUN XXIV). The Suncrest (ex Sun XXIII) is the only remaining tug of that kind remaining on the Thames.
