Arctic Corsair

The Arctic Corsair is a nationally significant vessel representing the end of a once major industry. Built in Beverley in 1960 for the Boyd Line, the Arctic Corsair had a career that included a world-record catch and conflict and collision in the Cod Wars.

As part of Hull Maritime, a £30m project funded by Hull City Council and The National Lottery Fund, the Arctic Corsair will be fully restored with increased access and new displays to tell her full story.

The trawler will set sail to her new home in early 2023 following restoration and is expected to reopen to visitors in early 2024.
