Thomas Summers & Co. : Boatbuilders of Fraserburgh

Regular price £14.99

Founded in the late 1940s, the yard of Thomas Summers & Co. became synonymous with fine seaworthy fishing boats suited to various methods of fishing. Their output was more prolific than most of the other Scottish boatyards. Many of these boats survive to this day, some still working as fishing vessels, others converted to pleasure, a testament to their superb design and solid construction.

Here, Mike Smylie recounts the story of Thomas Summers & Co. through historic records and personal memories of both fishermen and family members, with many striking photographs of the boats they built.
