REFURBISHMENT: Trimline Completes £2.2 Million Refit for Red Osprey

The scope of work was comprehensive, including a new sun deck, lounges, bar and catering equipment, lighting and electrical fittings, seating, doors, bulkheads and panelling, flooring, window surrounds, insulation, fire protection, CCTV, telephones and computers. This ambitious refurbishment followed a record-breaking year for the ship’s operator Red Funnel, which saw a 15% increase in traffic across the Solent during the main summer holiday period.

Redesigned to offer a more cruise-like experience, the refitted Red Osprey offers 55% more inside seating, two new lounges, air conditioning throughout, free wi-fi, 35 digital screens showing TV programmes and two interactive 65″ touch-screens hosting children’s games and quizzes.

“It’s an hour-long journey and people should feel comfortable, so we wanted to give that slightly more luxurious feel,” said Red Funnel Chief Executive Kevin George. “Trimline’s excellent refurbishment will transform our customers’ experience and their very prompt work has ensured that Red Osprey is back in service right on time.”

“We are delighted to have completed this crucial refurbishment for Red Funnel,” added Trimline CEO Andrew Richards. “Winning this important contract confirms the strong relationship we have built with them over the years, and thanks to a huge team effort the new and improved Red Osprey is re-entering scheduled service on time. I understand that customer feedback is extremely positive and that Red Funnel and their passengers are delighted with the outcome.”
