A Tees fishing company is on the hunt for an ambitious skipper and crew to navigate its new vessel.
Fitted out by Middlesbrough firm Jalna Construction, the Pauline Mary – a Cygnus GM 27 – has just completed sea trials and is now ready to meet a captain and crew skilful enough to sail her out from Hartlepool Marina.
An open day will be held by Jalna with bookable time slots, where applicants will be able to put forward their credentials, take a tour around the vessel and showcase their skills.
Following the open day, the company hopes to appoint a skipper, who will then be involved in appointing the fishing boat’s crew.
Managing director Greg Horner said: “This is a unique opportunity for a highly motivated individual who is ambitious about the fishing industry.
“We expect to receive a lot of interest and it to be a busy day, therefore we ask anyone who is serious about this opportunity to book a slot on the opening day.”
The Pauline Mary is ready to with immediate effect and will use selective and sustainable fishing methods ensuring the highest quality of fish is landed each day, targeting white fish and shell fish depending on seasons.
She is one of two working boats to be overhauled by Jalna Construction, alongside the construction Gracie Ava, with the company currently working on the construction of another 14 metre steel vessel.
