Launch of Admiral Gordon

We are excited to announce the launch of New Build 058 at Middlesbrough today – a 27.3-metre beam trawler Admiral Gordon PH-330.

We know that many of our followers have been looking forward to seeing the completed vessel, thank you for your interest.

Congratulations to the vessel’s owners! It has been a pleasure working with you all, best wishes from everyone at Parkol.

The vessel will undergo completion and commissioning work over the next few weeks before sailing to Whitby at the beginning of April for final trials. The vessel will then travel to her home port of Plymouth for an official Christening before taking up fishing duties.

Admiral Gordon is the first over 20-metre beam trawler to be designed and built in the UK for 30 years, a massive achievement to all involved, British Manufacturing at its best! A special thanks to the designers SC McAllister as well as our landlord, Port of Middlesbrough, Sarens crane company and all of our employees and suppliers who worked on the Project.
