The 23 metre Alyssa is an aquaculture service vessel built for Scottish commercial diving and marine services company Leco Marine.  Designed by Argyll Maritime Design Services the Alyssa will perform general fish farm work and is equipped with a net-cleaning and inspection system for the maintenance of fish-farm nets.

Leco Marine’s largest vessel, the Alyssa is an ideal workboat platform with a spacious aft deck, high stability and excellent visibility of operations from the wheelhouse. The large deck cargo capacity and deck crane ensures that lifting and transportation of diving gear and net cleaning equipment is completed with ease. This capacity allows the company to diversify into other fish farm duties should the need arise.

Designed by Sparkman and Stephens in 1937, this world famous racer was rescued from the US by the SMS team in 2014 and brought to the UK for a complete restoration.

As a racing machine she was hugely successful, winning her division in the Bermuda Race on her first outing. During the 1960s and under new owners she eventually entered the charter yacht sector and suffered a series of unsympathetic alterations for her new function. This included a series of bulkheads and other additions over the years, as well as a general decline suffered after eight years on the hard.

Today, having been lovingly restored, Blitzen is faster than she has ever been.
