The ETHEL was built in 1890 in Brixham at the shipyard of J & W Upham and continued until 1892 as LILY & ETHEL from Lowestoft in the North Sea fisheries. In 1906 she came to Sweden and was subsequently used as a fishing vessel in Bohuslan, Norway, until 1927.
This vessel is the one of a number of Brixham trawlers that were built for owners in Lowestoft and used as trawlers, the majority of which went on to sail the East Coast of England. Many former English fishing smacks, which were sold at the end of the Bohuslan fishing industry to Norway, remained there until after the end of the Second World War when they were used in the fisheries and coastal shipping industries.
The vessel is now based in Kiel and sails the Baltic. She is now German registered.
