Newlyn netter Ygraine landing in Newlyn.

Ygraine, one of the first Cygnus 44' trawlers and built for St Ives fisherman Barney Thomas in 1982 by Ivan Toms returned to Newlyn four years ago. Bought by brothers, Rhys and David Fife who fish aboard the pioneering ring-netter Pelagic Marksman during the sardine season...

the boat is worked for wreck fish and hake by the brothers when the sardine fishery is closed.  The boat was fitted out to maintain its catch to the highest quality standards.  The boat's business is very much a family affair, all members turn-to when it comes to landing her catch on the market.
