PANURGIC is a Grab Hopper Dredger and was built in 1935 by J S Watson (Gainsborough) Limited for the River Trent Catchment Board. During her working life she had a Gardner diesel engine producing 95 bhp. When working she had 4 winches and a crane. Her hull is rivetted and had a hopper 8.5m long and an engine room.
Although she served on the River Trent for many years there is a gap in her history until Lloyds Register for 1995/96 shows her on the River Dart and owned by Philip & Son Limited; she was classed in Lloyds Register until March 1986. PANURGIC now lies at Appledore with her engine and crane removed.
