Rising Moon

Rising Moon: Lobster Fishing Vessel

Commissioned in late 2000 Rising Moon was built and launched by Geraldton Boat Builders. An extension in 2002 added 1.32m to the transom along with the addition of a flybridge to the top of the wheelhouse. She now holds just under half a tonne of live crayfish in her fixed cray tanks whilst cruising at 18 knots.
