The Fifie Amaranth was a fishing ship built during the early 1930’s and used an oil engine rather than steam propulsion, the latter of which was more common throughout the UK at the time. The use of oil engines proved to be highly popular for fisherman with the accessibility of better manoeuvrability and a more cost effective way to run the ships.
