Lucinda is the name of a harbour tugboat at Brendam Docks.

Technical Details


Lucinda is based on the twin-screw harbour tugboat named Imara, built in 1931 by Fleming and Ferguson, Paisley, to work for the Tanganyika Railway Company at Dar es Salaam Docks in Tanzania. She was later renamed Perseverance when entering Royal Naval service in 1932. She was sold to the British Iron and Steel Corporation in 1958 and was scrapped in 1960.


Lucinda has a black and red hull with a white lining separating the two colours, a cream superstructure, and a red funnel with a black top. In the model series, Lucinda's name was painted on the sides of her bow in white, however, this was not present in the CGI series.

  • A model of Lucinda is currently on display at Drayton Manor.
  • A model of Lucinda was built by Jeremy King.
  • Lucinda's livery is identical to that of Alysia. As the two are both shown to be stationed at Brendam Docks, it is likely they are owned by the same company.
    • The livery is quite similar to Theodore of the Theodore Tugboat series.
  • In the CGI series, Lucinda's name was removed from her hull.
  • The second tugboat identical to Lucinda first appeared in the tenth series. Later on in the CGI era of the series, multiple tugboats of the same type as Lucinda would be seen, including one at Dakar Docks in Senegal.[1]
  • Lucinda's Series 10 horn is a stock sound also heard in Mario Kart 8, The Simpsons Game and the New Tricks episode "Blood is Thicker than Water".
