The David Church was built in 1995 by Appledore Shipbuilders and replaced the veteran dredger the Admiral Day, which, is still in service today. The David Church is an extremely versatile vessel and can dredge to a maximum depth of 18 metres and can also be used as a floating crane, capable of lifting up to 15 tons. Although she is kept busy around Europe's busiest ferry port, she is available for charter and contract dredging elsewhere.
For excellent views of the harbour taken from the David Church, check out Andy Stroud's Facebook page and enjoy the photography taken from his "office" onboard...
