History of the Arctic Corsair

Built in 1960 at Beverley Shipyard for the Boyd Line, The Arctic Corsair 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.

The Arctic Corsair is registered as number 628 on the National Historic Ships Register.
