About this object
High and Dry. An unusual sight at the Port of Napier yesterday was the arrival of the 15.2 metre tug Yanchep, passing through on its way to a new career as a second tug for the Port of Gisborne. The Yanchep arrived in Napier from Brisbane, Australia, aboard the freighter Forum Papua New Guinea on Thursday. It was expected to sail for Gisborne today.
