SERINGA and her sister ship SUNDARI PD93 were built for J B Morgand and others, Peterhead and were based on John Lewis' popular pocket trawler design. Both ships were used for different types of fishing from trawling, starboard side only, seine net to pair trawling.
In 1985 SERINGA was sold to William Ritchie of Peterhead and renamed HEADWAY PD346.
In 1988 she was sold to I. Donn of Peterhead and Don Fishig Co. Aberdeen and renamed JULIEANNE FR122.
