Historical Information

The Scottish Fifie was an fishing vessel used primarily in the herring fishery off the east coast of Scotland from the 1850s into the twentieth century. The early Fifies were equipped only with two masts which were mounted forward in order to allow easy access to the rear deck for the fishermen. When motorization began in the later 1800s. the size of the boats increased from 66 feet for a large Fifie with sails only to around 70 feet for a motorized Fifie. By the early 1900s all of the sailing Fifies were being converted to motorized vessels.
