Main Articles

Twin rig Sparkling Star trawler at our Whitby yard, designed to catch monkfish and megrims out of Kinlochbervie and Peterhead in Scotland.  She was also the first new boat to be for a local skipper since 1985

This fully shelter-decked boat features a bespoke new round bilge hull design, marking a new class of vessels created by our dedicated marine architect Ian Paton, for maximum performance in the water, and increased fuel efficiency.

She has been designed to be very fuel efficient, using on average 45 litres an hour when towing out gear, which she does with ease. The especially designed round bilge hull was designed using computerised fluid flow monitoring techniques to maximise fuel efficiency at an average of 45 litres an hour when towing at 900rpm.

An extended deckhouse design maximised the amount of internal space, incorporating a watertight, full-width steel bulkhead which extens from the port to starboard rails, enhancing the safety of the boat while eliminating any risk of water entering the accommodation areas.

The vessel has the highest quality galley, messroom and sleeping quarters furnished for crew comfort and a hyper-efficient fish handling system to minimise crew labour and maximise catch capacity and quality.
