Shipbuilder: Ryton Marine Ltd, Wallsend
Ryton Engineering Ltd purchased the existing boat building yard of RD Lambies at Davey Bank at Wallsend in 1972.
A new company Ryton Marine Ltd was then set up on the site with three covered berths, two of 220ft in length and one of 280ft.
The berths were then fitted out for shipbuilding.
The yard did not survive for very long completing only one ferry (FREDA CUNNINGHAM) and then two small stern trawlers. The tug FLYING FULMAR which was building for the Clyde and the Cowes ferry NETLEY CASTLE were incomplete when the yard failed in 1973. The liquidators arranged for FLYING FULMAR and NETLEY CASTLE to be completed. FLYING FULMAR being completed by Ryton Marine (in liquidation) and NETLEY CASTLE by Vosper Thornycroft at Southampton. The shipyard site was then taken over by William Brothers Offshore in 1974.
