According to the Port, the new vessel was named in honor of their friend and colleague, the late Giles Stimson.

The naming ceremony, joined by port employees and the Stimson family, took place yesterday at their operations base on Whyte Island.

The 8.5m Air Rider will tender to our flagship vessel the TSHD Brisbane, when she departs from the Port on board the TSHD Brisbane for its northern ports campaign,” said Port of Brisbane.

“Giles’ contribution to our business, the port community, and the hydrographic surveying industry – both within Australia and Internationally – was immense, and it was a privilege to name the vessel in his honor.”
