Aberdeen Trawler "Paramount"

The Aberdeen motor trawler "Paramount" (A309) was one of a series built by Mitchison's yard at Gateshead on Tyne.  She joined the fleet in 1959, and fished until the mid-1970s, when this class of side-trawler became obsolete.  She is pictured tramping along in fair weather.

 

The owner of this painting, which was bought from the studio here in Lerwick, lives on Tyneside.
