Bow of large wooden boat

Here the story of Zulu fishing boats is told: from how the vessels got their name, to the development of their design and their key role in Scottish fishing. Illustrated by many photographs and models, the main feature of the gallery is the vessel Research LK62, the last remaining first class Zulu in Scotland. From her construction in Banff in 1903 to her last fishing trip in Shetland in 1968, followed by the Museum’s struggle to preserve her, her career is charted. A reconstructed cabin and testimonies of her former crew give an insight into life on board.
