City Alpha gets a makeover


London based river sightseeing company City Cruises has a varied fleet of boats and today they have taken re-delivery of City Alpha on completion of her rebuild.

Originally a single deck boat, of the same design as City Gamma, pictured below, she was stripped down to her hull and rebuilt as a twin deck boat offering more space and better views for tourists.

After spending a few days in the KGV Lock at North Woolwich for MCA tests, final fitting out and testing of systems she has now departed to City Cruises’ river Thames base at Cherry Garden Pier and will soon become a regular sight on the river again.
