Vigilance was the last trawler to be built at Uphams Yard in Brixham and will celebrate her 100th birthday in 2026!
Vigilance is unique amoung the Heritage Fleet in that she is entirely owned and run by volunteers, and run in a NOT FOR PROFIT manner. ALL money raised from donations, sails and events is only spent on running her for the benefit of the local community.
The ‘new’ Vigilance Centenary Project, commences in 2019. This is a very ambitious project that hopes to address the long term requirements of the vessel to ensure it stays part of the towns maritime fishing heritage for years to come. We need to raise many £100,000s to address major structural works and historically sympathetic restoration to Vigilance.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please would you join the Torbay Lottery Scheme and pledge your donation to us and Good Luck!
Culturally Vigilance is an iconic reminder of the towns past, present and future as ‘Fish Town’. We preserve Vigilance BM76 as a Heritage Asset for the people of Brixham, to pass on the skills and serve as a Mascot for the Industrial Heritage of Brixham Town. Heritage and history are firmly at the heart of Brixham and Torbay's tourism economy and we want Vigilance to be part of that for many years to come. The Red Sails of Vigilance are an iconic sight in beautiful Tor Bay. We really hope you choose to help us sail in our Bay for decades to come.
Thanking you all in advance
