Steel-hulled motor fishing vessel of round bilge, transom stern, bulbous bow, soft nose stem and with full length shelter, arranged for static gear gill netting, fitted with a fishroom, and manned by a crew of 10 men. Below deck she is subdivided by three watertight bulkheads into: aft accommodation with steering gear, engine room, hold and forepeak. The main deck has an amidships steel galley, mess and washroom casing. Net hauling position at starboard, forward. 15 net ponds aft. Shelter is non-weathertight, aluminium. Aluminium aft wheelhouse, and mast.
“This is the first vessel that we have built for Waterdance Ltd. She will fish out of Newlyn for high value ground species. The vessel was started just before lockdown 2020 and it was a challenge getting back on track after a period of shutdown, but, thanks to the hard work of our team here at Parkol, we delivered
it on time” – Sally Atkinson.
