HMS Hurworth (M39) made history when she arrived in Falmouth on 9 August 2013, as the only HMS vessel to double berth in the Port.
The Hunt Class, mine countermeasures (MCMV) ship, in Falmouth for a visit, was escorted in by an A&P Falmouth tug. One of the largest warships ever built of glass reinforced plastic, HMS Hurworth cost £35m to build. There are 7 other vessels in her Class and all are based at Portsmouth as the Second Mine Countermeasurers Squadron (MCM2).
The HMS Hurworth is seen here next to HMS Enterprise (H88) inside Queens Wharf and RFA Mounts Bay (L3008) on the outside of Queens Wharf.
