Despite COVID-19 trying to dampen the spirits, Reliance III was successfully launched at our Whitby yard, in front of a small gathering of family and Parkol workers on 3rd September 2020. The vessel is the 2nd boat we have built for John Clark and the Reliance Fishing Company. She is a 20 meter 200 tonne steel-hulled twin rig trawler designed for fishing prawn and white fish and will be fishing out of her home town of Banff.

The boat has a round bilge hull, transom stern, bulbous bow, soft nose stem and with a full length shelter. Arranged for single and twin rig trawling. Below deck she is subdivided by three watertight bulkheads into: aft accommodation with steering gear, engine room, fishroom and forepeak tank/store.

The main deck has an athwartships, steel casing centred aft of midships for galley, mess and washroom. At the aft side is a steel shelter and integral gallow arrangement over net drums and forward has a non-weathertight shelter space for fish handling and winch. The shelter deck has an aluminium alloy wheelhouse, landing crane, steel trawl gallows with crane and power block.

Director and Project Manager Sally Atkinson said, "During the build of Reliance III Parkol faced one of its most challenging times when the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to temporarily close the yards. However, when we could safely return to the yards we pulled out all the stops to get everything back on track, which shows the dedication and determination of our staff. It was a pleasure working with John and his team, and we're very proud of the feedback we have had from him. We wish John, David and crew much success and safe fishing."
