Guiding Light - Yard No 039

Main Articles

The 26m Guiding Light built for the Hull fishing company Andrew Marr International Ltd, and is a sistership to Guiding Star H 360, which the yard completed in 2014.  Apart from a few very minor differences to working arrangements and internal layout, the starboard boat is a virtual mirror image of Guiding Star. This underlines the consistently successful level of performance, in terms of fishing efficiency, seakeeping qualities and fuel economy, that Guiding Star has delivered since entering service four years ago, which clearly gave the owners the confidence to place an order for the second half of an identical pair team.

Guiding Light has main dimensions of LOA 26m, registered length 23.98m, beam 7.8m and depth 4.3m. Although sharing the same main dimensions as Guiding Star, the new boat’s round bilge hull incorporates a number of ‘little tweaks’ designed to give optimum levels of performance.  These include slightly fuller hull sections aft, and raising the shelterdeck slightly.  A watertight full-width deckhouse separating the forward catch-handling area from the net-handling area on the quarter. The non-watertight deckshelter is constructed with steel from the deckhouse aft to the transom, and with aluminium alloy forward. Below main deck level, the layout from forward follows the norm of forepeak and chain locker, fishroom, engineroom and accommodation cabin.  with a watertight full-width deckhouse separating the forward catch-handling area from the net-handling area on the quarter.   Three Geneglace 2.5t ice machines are housed in dedicated compartments situated on either side of the main deck forward of the fishroom hatch, Mitsubishi S6R2-T2MPTK main engine develops 480kW @ 1350rpm, and is coupled to a Reintjes WAF 474 7.476:1 reduction gearbox.
