Arctic Corsair

Arctic Corsair

Details

The Arctic Corsair was built in 1960 at Beverley Shipyard for the Boyd Line, and was the last of the Hull side fishing vessels or 'side winders'. She had a long and successful career despite the decline of the local fishing industry after 1975.

A veteran of the Cod Wars, the Arctic Corsair was rammed by an Icelandic gun boat in the 1970s. After a lay-up of seven years she achieved a record breaking return to fishing in 1986 before being finally laid up in the winter of 1987.
