A new 26m whitefish vessel currently being built by Parkol Marine Engineering at Whitby is nearing an advanced stage of fit-out and machinery installation under cover at Whitby, reports David Linkie.

Built for skipper Michael Henderson, together with partners Mark Hoseason and Lindsay Inkster of the Guardian Angell Fishing Company Ltd, the fully shelterdecked single rig trawler is scheduled to be named later this month.

The new Shetland whitefish vessel will feature a Mitsubishi S6R2 propulsion unit, Scania DI13 electrical/hydraulic auxiliary engine and a Mitsubishi 6D16 genset will be installed in the new Shetland whitefish vessel. Fuel capacity will be 28,000 litres, some of which will be carried in double bottom fuel tanks under the floor of the fishroom, which will have a working capacity of some 1,150 boxes.

The first new whitefish boat to be built for Shetland owners since 2008 features a Rapp Ecosse deck machinery package. This includes two 15t split trawl winches mounted on the shelterdeck aft of the wheelhouse, two 2 x 12t split net drums positioned as customarily on the quarter, a PTS-Pentagon auto trawl system and two deck cranes.
