GOLDEN DAWN was built in Sandhaven in 1964 by J G Forbes. She was originally fitted with a caterpillar engine which has been replaced by a Cummins diesel engine. Her hull and deck are original though her wheelhouse has been changed over time. Work is currently being carried out on the vessel including re-caulking below her waterline, caulking the deck and fitting a fish hold to the accommodation.
