Scottish pelagic vessel Pathway has been sold to new owners in Russia.

Alasund Shipbrokers in Iceland have brokered a deal with a Russian buyer for Lunar Fishing’s Pathway to be sold to new owners in Russia.

The deck equipment, including 82 tonne trawl winches and 50 tonne net drums, are from Karmøy Winch, as is the 18 inch fish pump. Accommodation is for a crew of sixteen in single cabins.

Pathway is due to be delivered to its new owners next month.

Hi Davie,

Iam quite amazed that the Pathway is going all the way to Korea for modifications ! Iam quite sure that yards here in the UK could have done the work.I hope she has AC as its a long voyage,not nice if not comfortable.

cost is a factor I'd think Gavin , South Korea would be half the cost of any European yard to get the work done and they have to steam her round there anyway ( fishing off the Russian far east and Bearing Sea I think ) so no point wasting time just get going , as for AirCon not sure if she has or not , I don't know of any fishing boats that have AC fitted
