The port of Buckie is now home to our brand new £2.4million dredger, MV Selkie. Named by schoolchildren after a mythical Scottish creature which resembles a seal in the water but takes human form on land, it will be undergoing sea trials with a view to being made available commercially in Summer 2016.
You can see pictures from our test dredging at Whitehills Marina by visiting their website.
