Local delivery for Mainstay
Milford Marina, which is the largest fishing port in Wales, has welcomed the ‘FPV Rhodri Morgan’, one of five new fisheries patrol vessels taking to the waters in 2019.
The vessel was built by local company Mainstay Marine Solutions, and was named in Cardiff Bay in December, memorialising the former First Minister Rhodri Morgan.
The vessel is 26 metres long, weighs 75 tons, and carries 11,000 litres of fuel. It also has room for a 6.5 metre sea-boat. It was built, along with four other vessels, to replace the previous fleet. This fleet will patrol Welsh waters looking for illegal fishing activity.
Melanie Durney, Docks and Marina Manager, Milford Marina, commented: “As Wales’ largest fishing port, we are honoured to have the FVP Rhodri Morgan here in the marina. It is an impressive vessel, and we are pleased to see that it will be part of the fleet patrolling the Welsh fishing grounds.”
