SUCCESSFUL EXPO FOR PARKOL
Successful Expo for Parkol – Whitby based Parkol Marine Engineering had a very successful Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen with two new boat building contracts signed at the show and were also awarded the Best New Build Shellfish Boat 2018 for Star Fishing Company’s 20m scallop vessel Summer Rose.
John and David Clark of Reliance Fishing Company Ltd signed for a 20m LOA, 16.49 registered length, 190tonne twin-rig trawler, complete with Mitsubishi S6R2 main engine and Reintjes gearbox she will be built and fitted out in Whitby with fabrication starting in August.
The vessel will be twin screw powered by Cummins KTA-19 engines. This will be the second feed carrier built by Parkol for LCL (First – Havilah completed 2015) and is to be built at our Middlesbrough yard with the first steel being due for delivery at the end of the month.
Parkol Marine Engineering was established almost 50 years ago as a boat repair company by Ken Parker and the late John Oliver. Based at Spital Bridge in Whitby before moving to the town’s Eskside Wharf in 1992, they have grown tenfold and are now recognised as one of the leading boat builders in the UK.
Today’s team share the passion of the two founders, as well as adding their wide-ranging experience of everything from fabrication to engineering, civil engineering, project management and design innovation which are defining the next, exciting stage of our evolution.
