The Fifie is a type of fishing boat that has developed on the east coast of Scotland. It was used by Scottish fishermen from 1850 to the twentieth century, when many of these boats were powered. These boats were designed for herring fishing and therefore equipped with drift nets, hence the nickname of herring drifters.
Chris Watton, author and researcher of naval models, well known and appreciated, helped us a lot during the development and research phases. We always try to develop our models with great accuracy, the most faithful possible to reality.
