Red Funnel RED JET 6 PRE-LAUNCH
Red Jet 6, the latest addition to the Red Funnel fleet, was revealed on Wednesday 25th May as part of a large marine logistics operation in the solent.
Williams Shipping was responsible for supplying a barge and tug boat, the Wilcarry 1750 and Joli L, to move the vessel from East Cowes on the Isle of Wight to Southampton docks.
Red Jet 6 was then lifted off the barge via 2 large cranes, and slowly lowered into the water. The Joli L tug then transported her back to the Isle of Wight for her official launch the following week.
The operation was a great success and brought together many of the solent’s leading marine businesses.
