Ship shape for HM
07 March 2013
When the Queen and her royal party set off on their recent 10- day Scottish islands cruise aboard the small but superluxurious Hebridean Princess, the vessel was more than just ship-shape. It was spotless, and several of the key cleaning materials used were supplied by The Windowclean Centre.
The glass clearing agent 'Crystal Clear 550' used on the glass was so effective that the Daily Mail reported that 'board games and a 1000-piece jigsaw were spotted through the windows of the ship as it set sail.' In addition to glass clearing agent,The Windowclean Centre supplied the operators of the Hebridean Princess with poles, tools and other equipment used to get the 30-cabin ship in truly royal condition.
"We were delighted to be approached by the ship's owners,"says The Windowclean Centre's Darrell Chalkley."I knew they would perform excellently on the Hebridean Princess ? even though she must sometimes experience some pretty fierce weather.
"I don't think we've supplied products to a more luxurious enduser," adds Chalkley.
The Queen's cruise ? during which the 60th and 50th birthdays of Princess Anne and Prince Andrew were celebrated ? ended when Capt.Michael Hepburn brought the 2112-ton ex-Caledonian MacBrayne ferry into harbour on August 2nd.
