Martin is semi-new boat

The H.M. Griffith was built in 1973. In 2000, the engine-room portion of that vessel was combined with a new hull to create a ‘new’ vessel called the Rt. Hon. Paul J Martin. It is named after Canada’s 21st Prime Minister and the former president of Canada Steamship Lines, the owner of the boat.
