Waterdance takes delivery of new crabber

Greendale Group subsidiary Waterdance Fishing has taken delivery of a new crab boat from Dutch builder Luyt Groep.

Designed by Ian Paton at SC McAllister and Co, the 14.99- by seven-metre steel-hulled Nichola of Landram is also Luyt’s first newbuild for a UK company.

The vessel has a Caterpillar C18 main engine and space for up to 22.5 tonnes of crab on board.

It is expected to operate across South-West and Mid-Channel fishing grounds, making landings in Brixham, Salcombe, and Newlyn depending on the fishing area.
