Guardian Angell

Complete Deck Machinery Package for Whitefish Trawler

Shetland’s newest 26 meter whitefish trawler owned by Guardian Angell Fishing Company, has completed its full scale fishing trails including training of the crew in operation and maintenance of the system.

"We are pleased that the trails were successfully completed, the deck machinery from Rapp Marine worked 100%!”, enthuses the proud General Manager of Rapp Marine UK.  “A first class installation by Parkol Marine Engineering ensured a speedy commissioning by our service manager Drew Elphinstone.  And the owners and the crew made the whole process from initial enquiry right through to trials the most pleasurable and trouble free contract we have ever delivered!”

Owner and Skipper Michael Henderson signed the contract for Parkol Marine Engineering to build the Guardian Angell on the opening day of the Skipper Expo at Aberdeen in 2014.

Designed by Ian Paton of S C McAllister & Co Ltd, the fully shelterdecked single rig trawl vessel features a Mitsubishi S6R2 propulsion unit,  a Scania auxiliary engine dedicated to drive the hydraulic pumps for the Rapp Marine deck machinery, and a further Mitsubishi auxiliary engine for ship’s electrical power.

Rapp Marine are grateful to owners for the confidence they have shown in us to supply the deck machinery for Shetlands newest white fish trawler and we wish boat and crew good luck with the new Guardian Angell.
