Vote for Parkol boats!

And finally, Valhalla – our entry #3 in Fishing News Awards “Boat of the Year” category.

A versatile whitefish/prawn twin-rigger, the 27.80m Valhalla was delivered to skipper Mark Andrew Masson in December. The vessel had the double distinction of being Parkol’s yard number 50 in our 50th anniversary year, and also being the largest vessel built in Whitby yard to date.

Designed by SC McAllister & Co, the Valhalla is of round bilge construction, with a transom stern and a soft-nosed stem with a bulbous bow. It features a Caterpillar C32 main engine driving a Heimdal HG5114 gearbox to turn a VP 2,780mm-diameter K600 four-bladed bronze propellor. The extensive refrigerated fishroom has a capacity of 1,150 boxes. Deck machinery was supplied by Bopp, and the catch-handling system by Seagate Fabrication.
