These boats whose names start with Ex... are usually ex-RNXS training vessels which would have had black hulls, but are now used as training boats for various University naval units. Others, for example Biter, Smiter etc were always grey.

For the full story on the RNXS see - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Naval_Auxiliary_Service

and for University units see - http://www.royal-navy.mod.uk/server/show/nav.2195

The top badge is 820 NAS to which the unit is affiliated.
