Milford Marina, the largest fishing port in Wales, has welcomed FPV Rhodri Morgan, one of five new fisheries patrol vessels taking to the waters in 2019.

The new vessel was built by local company Mainstay Marine Solutions, and was named in Cardiff Bay in December, memorialising the former First Minister Rhodri Morgan.

The vessel is 26 metres long, weighs 75 tonnes, and carries 11,000 litres of fuel. It also has room for a 6.50 metre sea-boat. It was built, along with four other vessels, to replace the previous fleet. This fleet will patrol Welsh waters looking for illegal fishing activity.

“As Wales’ largest fishing port, we are honoured to have the FPV Rhodri Morgan here in the marina,” said Melanie Durney, Docks and Marina Manager, Milford Marina.

“It is an impressive vessel, and we are pleased to see that it will be part of the fleet patrolling the Welsh fishing grounds.”
