She passed from CSP to Sealink and was moved South operating mostly from Weymouth. Following her withdrawal she became a floating club at Newcastle and was renamed TUXEDO PRINCESS. She then moved back home so to speak taking up residence near the Kingston Bridge in Glasgow in the late 1980s until 1995 when, after varying fortunes and a lot of bad publicity she moved back to Newcastle. She remained there till 2008 when she was towed to Aliaga in Turkey for scrap arriving there on August 23rd.
