KC on the undercover slipway.

As the scale of the necessary work for Phase 1 of KC’s rebuild has unfolded as the aft part of the ship has been dismantled her return to service this summer has been pushed back and is now expected to be late June.

Re-plating port side aft.

She will then be rostered to run harbour cruises from Dartmouth throughout the summer every day except Fridays.

Looking aft.

The rebuild is set to extend over three winters with completion expected to coincide with KC’s centenary season in 2024. It is anticipated that the whole project will cost in excess of one million pounds.
