New fishing vessel Orion completed by Macduff Shipyards

Macduff Shipyards has recently signed over its latest new build fishing vessel Orion (BF 432) to owner Brian Harvey and his two sons Andrew and Simon. The boat replaces their previous fishing vessel of the same name, which was built by the yard in the early noughties and is intended to fish around the coast of Scotland, predominately in the North Sea. Orion was originally planned to be built from the yard’s previous 24.50 m hull model but during the early design phase a decision was taken to remodel the vessel’s bow based on the preliminary results from a tank testing program which the yard and Macduff Ship Design were running for another project. photos, >click to read< 08:54
