Alans Boatyard

Faltholm Model

'Flat Holm' (ex 'AL Khubar 3')


Survey Vessel (ex Harbour Tug).


Model based on the 'Model Slipway' Kit - 'Al Khubar'

Model Scale: 1:32.    GRP Hull.    Model Length: 790.0 mm.


I was fortunate to get aboard 'Flat Holm' & take lots of detail photographs & measurements of the alterations made during her conversion.


I then modified the standard 'Al Khubar 'kit & made new items where necessary.


I have made both the tow post in the bow & the main towing position strong enough to be used for towing,

when originally converted the main tow hook was removed & replaced with a crane,

so I have strengthened the crane base, so it can be used as a tow post.

With grateful thanks to her owners Coastline Surveys Ltd, for all their help with my research.

One of the kit modifications was to make new rudders and remove the lower rudder horizontal support brackets.

A big alteration was to remove the bulwarks around the stern & add all the fendering

The reinforced circular  units, were installed when originally built to enable the hull to be lifted into the water.

There were Three sister vessels built - Al Khubar 1, Al Khubar 2, Al Khubar 3.


I have researched the history of all three tugs up to 2003.
