Ambitious and challenging, this project will help to preserve Poole's history for years to come.
After almost five decades of service former Poole pilot boat Tom Sherrin is undergoing the most extensive refit of her career.
Since her launch in October 1970, Tom Sherrin has served the Port of Poole and later Alderney before returning home for retirement with the Maritime Volunteer Service.
This renovation project sees her undergoing a full restoration by our own volunteers and students of the International Boat Building College, Portsmouth.
