Description

Ryton Marine Ltd took on the old Lambie Yard which was located on Davy Bank at Wallsend. The Lambie's started in Greenock, but two of the brothers moved to Wallsend and set up a yard in 1892. Robert D lambie lived at Hawthorn Villas on the Green. They primarily made screw steamers from the outset but went on to make fibre-glass boats when Robert's son Morison took over the business in 1946. Their first, Airedale, was constructed after 1958 and built for a transatlantic race in 1969.Lambie was bought out by the Ryton Marine Group who primarily made research vessels for various institutions including Newcastle University.
