The cruise ship Bolette in dock in Falmouth

A&P Falmouth has completed a multi-million-pound program of works on the largest passenger ship to visit the facility in over 60 years. Bolette, a Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ vessel, entered drydock for a 13-day refurbishment, including maintenance to the ship’s azipods and bow thrusters as well as a new application of underwater paint.

This was the second time in 12 months that Fred. Olsen has chosen to dock at A&P Falmouth, with Balmoral completing a program of work in May last year. This included steel inserts, overhauls to the ship side valves and tunnel thruster and an underwater hull paint job.

Mike Spicer, managing director of A&P Falmouth, said: “The visit provided a fantastic opportunity to showcase our capabilities and the fact that A&P’s location in the southwest makes it an ideal facility for cruise ships operating in this area. Contracts such as these make a significant economic contribution to the prosperity of the southwest and helps to support our workforce and apprenticeship program.”
