Continuing the celebration of our new builds,  this week we bring you Yards 007 and 008.

In September 2002 we built Berlewen for Nick Chapman, Berlewen Fishing Ltd, St. Austell. Carrying a crew of 5 men, she is steel-hulled with a registered length of 14.15 metres and was originally arranged for gill net fishing.  In 2016 she became the property of Waterdance Ltd, Exeter & Thomas Rainbird, Plymouth and was converted into a whelk potter.

You may have seen Berlewen in Whitby a few weeks ago as she recently left our Dry Dock after coming back to Parkol for some repair and maintenance work.

A year later in September 2003 Siwrengale was completed. She is a Vivier Crabber with the same registered length of 14.15 meters. Steel hulled motor fishing vessel of double chine, transom stern, semi bulbous bow, soft nose stem and with full length shelter, arranged for vivier potting, having a sea water vivier tank for storage of live catch. She was built for local firm Atlanta II Ltd (Darren Warters) of Bridlington and still fishes out of her home port.

The two vessels are shown here side-by-side at the completion of Berlewen and at the start of the build of Siwrengale.
