EREDENE was one of the early built diesel fishing boats built by John Lewis in the 60s. EREDENE fished the North Sea Shetland waters of 7-9 day trips.


Owned in 1970 by W H Stephen, Aberdeen.
Owned in 1974 by Brucewood Ltd, Aberdeen.
Owned later by Beaconhill F Co. Ltd, Aberdeen.

EREDENE operated for the company for twenty years and sold to N.P.F. Ltd, Aberdeen and converted to an Offshore Standby vessel and was renamed DAWN PEARL in 1981.

DAWN PEARL was with the company for six years. The original Polar engine was removed in April 1974 to be replaced by a 1973 built Mirrlees Blackstone Engine. In 1987 DAWN PEARL was sold to Vincent Pride Ltd (C Maine Shipping Ltd, Aberdeen) and was renamed UXIA.

In 1993 she was sold to the same company but renamed SHARK. SHARK was converted back to a side fishing life again in 1987. In 1998 SHARK was sold to First Short Ltd, Falmouth and renamed SEASTART. First Short had another Lewis built ship in its fleet identical to EREDENE in size and lifestyle and year built (MOUNT MELLERAY, 313, 1961) also named SEASTAR.

SEASTAR was sold in 1998 to Basonas Ltd, L&J Management Ltd, Wick, Scotland and renamed BRISAN, Fishing No. WK193, a Spanish Company still in operation.
