New contract sees return to roots

Goodchild Marine's managing director Alan Goodchild built his first fishing boat for his hometown of Great Yarmouth UK, shortly after he set up the company 42 years ago.

Well-known for the Goodchild flagship range of ORC pilot vessels, Alan's team are making a return to the fishing boat market with the new Rorcal 121.PS which is due for delivery in spring 2021

Set to operate out of the Isle of Skye for the Skye Shellfish Company Limited, the Rorcal 121.PS will seat four comfortably and reach a maximum speed of 13 knots. The vessel will incorporate many of the key features found on other boats constructed by Goodchild Marine.

Steve Pierce, General Manager said: “From day one the fishing industry was an important market for Goodchild Marine and we feel now is a key time to give our support to our UK fishermen as we enter the post Brexit era.”

“The Rorcal 121 will exhibit lots of our usual features, with an emphasis on reduced running costs, environmental impact, easy maintenance and above all outstanding sea keeping.”

“We are hoping our order from Skye Shellfish will be the first in a line of new Goodchild fishing boats for use across the UK and that we are able to expand and adapt our range to suit the business needs of various operators.”
