Built in 1958 by John Watt of Banff for T Hutchison of Whalsay, COMRADES is a fishing vessel registered as LK325 and based in the Shetland Isles.

A private owner bought her in 1992 and she continued to operate as a fishing trawler.  In September 2018 she passed into new private ownership and has been berthed in Macduff at the same shipyard she was built where she is to undergo a refit.
