North Devon Skipper Joins CWind Boat Share

MarineLink.com
Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Scott Wharton, a North Devon skipper with 29 years’ experience fishing in the Bristol Channel, has joined the CWind boat share scheme taking on a new CTruk 20T vessel due for launch in mid-July. The vessel will join the CWind fleet working on offshore wind farms around the U.K. soon after.

Under CWind’s boat share scheme, the company and the skipper both invest in the vessel and agree the sharing of costs and profits. While the skipper contributes the experience and manpower to run the vessel, CWind contributes contracts and contacts within the offshore wind industry as well as fleet management and their proven health and safety operating system.

The owner of a fleet of six fishing vessels, Scott’s company S&P Group, already employs skippers from Wales, Bideford and Ilfracombe, 22 full-time fishermen and six shore side workers. Similar to CWind’s boat share scheme, the skippers all own shares in the company giving them an enhanced interest and greater knowledge of the activities of the company. Scott Wharton himself is no stranger to the offshore wind industry either, having already undertaken traffic monitoring, plankton and trawl surveys over the last few years.
