Boat displays grow at Skipper Expo 2014

There will be more boat displays than ever at the Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen 2014, with three boatbuilders attending Scotland’s flagship fisheries show on May 30 and 31.

Anderson Marine will be exhibiting a new Cygnus SF33 vessel currently under construction for a Peterhead skipper.

The vessel will be ready for launch in late summer and when completed will line for mackerel and creel for lobster and crab. This displacement vessel is a popular model being just under 10 metres in overall length with a beam of 4.72m and a cruising speed around 9 knots.

Jim McConville of Anderson Marine said: “The SF33 is extremely well built and is robust enough for the often rough waters of the North Sea. It handles superbly well even in the poorest weather conditions.

“This Cygnus SF33 is too large a vessel to go inside the main arena so will be exhibited outside but Anderson Marine staff will be available at the boat and inside the exhibition hall on their main stand to provide further details on this boat and all others in our Cygnus, Kingfisher and Gemini ranges.”

Also attending is first time exhibitor, Maver Boats of Crail in Fife, who will be displaying their popular 6.9m catamaran design that is ideal for potting.

Regular exhibitor G Smyth Boats will also have a craft on display in Aberdeen, hot on the heels of their highly successful Galway show.

The Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen 2014 will be held in the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre in Scotland on 30 and 31 May.
