LADY ROSEMARY was an anchor handling supply vessel originally ordered by P&O Offshore but was bought over during construction by Tide Water Marine and name changed from LADY SYLVIA to LADY ROSEMARY prior to launch day.

LADY ROSEMARY was the forerunner to TROJAN & SPARTAN TIDE. She was a twin screw with controllable pitch props house in kort nozzles. There was a gantry that ran on rails on the working deck to lift the rig anchors clear of the ships stern when lifting it came of another ship belonging to the owners but was never a success.

Prior to the launch day the owners became Tide Wtarer Marine who own the largest fleet of oil supply ships. Tide Water Marine renamed the vessel ROSEMARY TIDE in 1977. The ship was then sold in 1980 to Dalmeijer's Metalen B.V. (Panama) and renamed RANGE TIDE.

No further trace after 1987.
