  • Beschreibung


    Look for part and full time crew to help aboard our beautiful stunning 78ft sailing trawler. She was built in 1926, the last of the wooden sailing trawlers built at Uphams Yard here in Brixham and was slipped into the water towards the end of 1926. She was built for a local family, George and Fred Fisher, George was the owner and Fred was the first skipper. She initially cost £1000 as a bareboat - meaning she only had a “hull and spar” - George had to take out a further loan of £350 from a local fish-sailsman to fit her out with the sails and all the working lines. She successfully fished until roughly 1935 and was put up for sale between then and 1939.

    Brixham is a fishing town and civil parish in the district of Torbay in the county of Devon, in the south-west of England. Brixham is at the southern end of Torbay, across the bay (Tor Bay) from Torquay, and fishing and tourism are the major industries of the town.

    Our nearest big international airport is Bristol which is around 2 hours away. There is no train station here, our nearest station is Paignton which is only 3/4 miles away. You can get the number 12 bus from Paignton to Brixham which runs regularly.

    The town is hilly and built around the harbour which remains in use as a dock for fishing trawlers. It has a focal tourist attraction in the replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship Golden Hind that is permanently moored there.

    Historically, Brixham was two separate communities with only a marshy lane to connect them. Cowtown was the area on top of the hill where the farmers lived, while a mile away around the harbour was Fishtown where the fishermen and seamen lived. Cowtown, the St Mary's Square area, is on the road leaving Brixham to the south west, in the direction of Kingswear, upon which stands a church built on the site of a Saxon original. The town holds a yearly pirate event which competes for the title of most pirates in one place and this draws visitors from far and wide.

    King William III landed in England at Brixham on 5 November 1688 on his way to become king as part of the Glorious Revolution

    We are about 20 minutes from the popular sea side resort of Torquay and about 45 minutes from Dartmoor National Park.
