Veteran sailor Prince Charles inaugurated a boat designed to make life easier for his fellow seafarers.



The Prince of Wales, who spent many years in the UK's Royal Navy and holds the honorary rank of Admiral, commissioned the Flying Angel during an afternoon ceremony.



The vessel, built in Dubai for The Mission to Seafarers, will soon enter service visiting ships off Fujairah, offering sailors the chance to relax, borrow books, call their relatives back home and get medical support.

Prince Charles went on board the Flying Angel yesterday afternoon when she was moored on Dubai Creek beside the British Embassy.



The smiling Royal chatted to some of the men from Albwardy Marine Engineering, the company that manufactured the vessel at its shipyard in Dubai.



He was hosted by the Reverend Stephen Miller from The Mission to Seafarers, who came up with the idea of creating the ship and helped to raise the Dh3.65 million needed to build her.



Next month the Flying Angel is set to enter service off Fujairah and she will spend five days a week visiting the ships at anchorage. (Gulf News)
