Lightship Kittiwake, Dun Laoghaire, co. Dublin

Sitting in the harbour in Dun Laoghaire
The Commissioners of Irish Lights have put the former automatic lightfloat Kittiwake up for sale on an "as is where is" basis. The ship is currently moored on the Carlisle Pier and was built of steel in 1959. It is 41.8 metres long with a mean draught of 3.35 metres and an approximate displacement of 600 tons.
Update: (June 2008) The Lightship has since been sold and is moored on the Liffey adjacent to the "Point Village" development
