I think she was built as 'Melissa' at Noble's of Girvan, their yard No 120.

Correct - A. Noble & Sons Limited of Girvan built her as their yard No. 120 in May 2001 for Lighthouse of Scotland - powered by Mermaid Marine Diesel engine. 16.9 metres in length (just under 55 feet)

Not really 'Pleasure Craft' but as we do not have a title 'Workboats' then I suppose it has to have home somewhere!

Many thanks to Iain and Angus for the info on Melissa and my apologies for not thanking you earlier. This type of craft tends to be fairly obscure unless you know exactly where to look. Once again, many thanks chaps.
