Initially brought on to the British Registry by Graham Perkes in 2011 as the Zuiderkruis GO55, based in Stellendam, Holland. Waterdance purchased the Angel of Ladram in 2015 because she was the only vessel of her size in the south coast fleet. A leading boat of her size class, the Angel of Ladram is in great condition. She is of a relatively low power, at 221KW, but her pulling ability is generated by a massive 14:1 reduction gearbox, which allows her to catch fish in a fuel-efficient way. In the interests of cutting fuel consumption, the crew of the Angel try to stay fishing all year round, and do not often travel far from Brixham.
