Fishing Boat Design & Build

Today’s fishermen want to be out fishing for longer in deeper and larger fishing boats than ever before. With the need for more stability in rough seas, more capacity to store your catch and more fuel efficient design to enable you to fish for weeks at a time, we can help.

We are currently booking build slots for new Gary Mitchell design 10m, 12m and 15m commercial fishing boats. These are available for sale as stage 1 and 2 as well as fully kitted out to sailaway stage. We can also custom design and build any vessel shape or specification to your requirements. Whether you need the latest hydraulic winches, hauling equipment, vivier tank or engines. We can cater for all types of commercial fishing setups from crabbing to trawling and can design the custom fishing boat to suit your needs.


We build commercial fishing boats using the latest GRP boat building techniques, but can also build and repair fishing vessels in steel, wood and carbon composites making us the ideal choice.

Fishing Rig & Setup

We have great relationships with specialist marine suppliers throughout the UK and Europe to equip your fishing boat with the best electric, hydraulic and engineering equipment to suit your budget.

Build Standards

All new build fishing vessels we have for sale are built to Seafish's strict set of UK construction standards, giving you peace of mind on your boat build project.
