Defender moored at Heybridge Basen,Essex.
She is the former “Al Majihad”(B6), a fast attack craft built in Lowestoft by Brooke Marine for the Sultan of Oman’s Navy. After 17 years of service she was de-commissioned and gifted back to Lowestoft as a display ship in recognition of the part Lowestoft played in the building of the Sultan of Oman’s navy during the 1970s.
Since this photo was taken Defender has now moved and is berthed in Maldon close to Green Mill for a full refit.
