Grassholm Ex- Trinity House Pilot Vessel, Lying Near La Rochelle, in Dept 17, France
"Grassholm" was built for Trinity House in 1970, as a Pilot Vessel for the Milford Haven Conservancy Board to carry 12 Pilots for the Tankers heading in and out of Milford Haven. She was built to Class VIIIA under Trinity House Plans and Supervision, to spend extended periods on the Irish Sea. The hull is very strongly constructed of 2inch thick teak planking on oak frames at 12inch centres, doubled from the water line to the keel. She has bilge keels fitted, and the main deck and bridge superstructure is constructed of Aluminium.
Offering up to ten berths in four cabins plus the saloon, the interior is very comfortably fitted out in teak panelling, with a very full inventory. The engine a Gardner 8L3B eight cylinder diesel has very low running hours since a major re-build and gives her an effective range of 1,500 miles
Grassholm had a full survey (May 2009) at the same time as her lift out and complete external repaint.

The Surveyor was confident that she could easily be Coded to MCA category 0, no limitations on distance, with little effort and little expense. We have the build book of the vessel which can be accepted.
In 2014 she was fully re-caulked from the keel up, hardened up and fastened if/where loose,
