REDDEN was built as a steam tug in Groningen, Holland in 1916. She is of iron riveted construction and her present engine is a Volvo D96M diesel.
She was used in the Baltic during the First World War and after the Second World War was seized and brought to the UK where she has worked all along the south coast as far as Southampton. Finally, in the 1990s, she worked on the London Docklands Development. Subsequently she was sold to be a houseboat on the River Medway.
REDDEN was bought by her present owner in 2009 to save her from being broken up and at the time of registration her hull was being restored with the aim of returning her to operational use.
