British Unions were up in arms when British workers were labelled 'fat and tattoed' by Stena Line boss.
Ferry boss, Pin de Lange, who runs the Harwich and Hook of Holland route went on to tell a Dutch newspaper that he found it difficult to find British workers who were young and fit enough for the job on offer.
De Lange has issued a statment saying that the comments were taken out of context and regrets the offence the coments caused.
"I hugely value the contribution of our British and Dutch employees, along with our Filipino crew, and as usual we will continue to work together", he said.
Nevertheless, RMT, which represents rail, maritime and transport workers is urging the company to distance itself from the remarks.
The RMT union, has been urging Stena Line to employ more Brits for a while now.
