It’s 50 years this year since Parkol was founded and we want to celebrate in style. We hope to have a proper knees’ up when it’s safe to do so, but for now we’re kicking off our festivities by sharing some photos of the vessels we have built and worked on.

Originally formed in 1971, the business started out as a marine repair yard, further up the road from the current Whitby yard, at Spital Bridge. After being asked if they could build a new vessel, Parkol ventured into the boat-building business.

Jacqueline Ann was our first new build - Yard 001. She launched from our Eskside Wharf yard in August 1997. The 19.11 tonne 9.99m Scalloper, designed by Ian Paton of SC McAllister & Co Ltd was built for owner's I F Hall & D I A Maclachlain.
