BRITANNIA is a motor fishing vessel, built by George Thomson & Son at Buckie in 1952. She is a typical design from that era and was so common that no plans were drawn for her construction. She was commissioned for work as a seine netter and was later converted to a trawler. BRITANNIA fished around the East and West Coast of Scotland and had an unremarkable service life. Her hull is carvel built with larch planking and oak frames. She has a cruiser stern and a plumb straight stem. The current engine is an inboard four-stroke Gardner 6L3B diesel with six cylinders and one hundred and seventy-two brake horsepower, made in 1967. BRITANNIA is currently in full working order, although all her fishing gear has been removed and a mizen mast and sail have been fitted.
Update: February 2021: Vessel disposed November 2020 after being sunk at her moorings in August 2020.
