New Opportune joins the local fleet

Opportune has been sold to other Shetland partners of Avrella Fishing Company and will be re-named Avrella in due course. Skipper Ross Christie and his father Jim own the 28m long vessel which was bought from Whitehills, near Macduff, and was shot blasted, repainted and had her three Caterpillar engines overhauled and hydraulic pipework renewed at Peterhead before she was taken north. Ross’s brother Alwyn is mate on the vessel, which was built in 1998 at Astilleros Armon in Spain as Harvest Moon. photos, >click to read< 09:22
