Yes Jim she's the ex-Fraserburgh registered Karvella of the Mk2 Spinningdale class built at Lewis' in Torry. She's up for sale just now for £60k.

No Jose they've not been fishing boats for a while. The Livania was used in Dundee for the Seamans College taking out trainee engineers and watch officers for a few years before being sold and converted into a private live aboard.

Thing is I can only see one of two things happening to the Livania , either she's bought and reconverted into a fishing boat or she'll be scrapped. I say this with some confidence as she's got a 635hp engine and with private boats no longer being allowed to get Red diesel ( flipping EU AGAIN !! ) her fuel will triple so that makes it just far to expensive to run.

Looks like the old Fraserburgh Golden Harvest from this angle but could be wrong. Definately an 80ft ex-seine net boat tho.

No Jose she's lying up in Orkney as a dive boat and the foremast is the wrong style and shape, quite a few differences in the wheelhouse too.

I'd say she's either the Golden Harvest or the Paulamanda.
