A Testament to Collaboration and Expertise

Golden Shore N 153 represents the culmination of collaborative efforts between Mooney Boats’ skilled workforce and leading Irish maritime companies. With a length of 14.96 meters (LOA) and constructed from Lloyd’s Grade-A 8mm steel, the vessel boasts exceptional durability and functionality. She is powered by a fuel-efficient Cummins QSM11 engine, ensuring optimal performance at sea.

Designed for Efficiency Across Fisheries

The Golden Shore N 153 is a testament to Mooney Boats’ design capabilities. Working closely with the Chambers family and naval architect Ian Paton of SC McAlister & Co Ltd, we crafted a vessel adept at handling various fishing applications. Dedicated catch handling systems ensure efficient operations in both scallop dredging and queenie trawling, the vessel’s primary targets. The design also allows for future adaptation to prawn trawling, maximizing the Golden Shore’s versatility and future-proofing the Chambers family’s business.

A Successful Beginning for a Long Legacy

After eight weeks at sea, the Chambers family has expressed high satisfaction with the Golden Shore N 153’s performance. They have particularly commended the vessel’s efficiency in both scallop dredging and queenie trawling, highlighting its seamless transition between these seasonal fisheries. This successful start signifies the beginning of a long and fruitful partnership between Mooney Boats and the Chambers family.
