She is a 20m Scallop Trawler, round bilge, transom stern, bulbous bow, soft nose stem and rigged for scallop dredge fishing, with dredge tipping doors and catch handling conveyors for 10 dredges a side.  Huge consideration was given to maximise fishing efficiency, crew safety, fuel economy and catch quality.

Positioned on the shelterdeck aft of the wheelhouse and forward of the rudder stock, the towing arms can be extended 2.5m, the extending towing arms offer two major advantages, in terms of safety, they eliminate the need for crewmen to reach out over the side of the vessel when clipping in the Gilson hook, as the hanging block is easily brought to the side and when turning during a tow, the arm on the inside of the turn can be brought in, which bring the fulcrum point closer to the hull and gives maximum turning leverage.

Below deck has been subdivided by four watertight bulkheads into: aft accommodation with steering gear, engine room, hold and forepeak tank/sonar/gear store.

Aft deckhouse for combined galley and mess, washroom, lobby, oilskin locker and workshop, with wheelhouse over.   Main deck working area to have split trawl winches, hinged outrigger arms, with catch conveyors and dredge tipping doors incorporated into bulwark sides.  Focsle catch sorting, washing and handling, compartment and store.  Open sided shelter deck fitted over the main deck, inboard of dredges, between deckhouse and focsle.
