Welcome to Sail Line Fish
Initial planning began in July 2008 when oil prices reached a record high. Through the relentless development of sail systems within the leisure industry the potential for a sail assisted commercial fishing vessel became evident.
After a period of project planning smart: Scotland funding was awarded in May 2010.
The funding was successfully used towards undertaking an 18 month feasibility study into the potential of sail assisted fishing. The aim being to prove in principle, through the use of modern technology that sail power can be compatible within a working fishing vessel.
Sail Line Fish Ltd is developing two related products: innovative sail system technology and high quality line caught fish.
We are also exploring other options for 'zero carbon' fishing with hybrid sail/electric propulsion.
