Seaway Group

Company History

SEAWAY was formed originally in 1977 by Kenneth West and his brother William West, designing and manufacturing fishing gear at their Bankhead premises in Macduff.

Not being able to further develop the original premises, the search began to find somewhere more suitable. This led to the purchase of the former railway station at Macduff allowing the company to expand and develop into the force that it is today. In the late 80's Seaway diversified into the hull fitouts, as well as continuing the net manufacturing side, and a result has led to the supply of vessels through both UK and International markets.
The wealth of knowledge and experience gained over these years has been fundamental in the development of what is now the SEAWAY GROUP.
This continues today with Seaway being run by Kenneth's sons Kenneth and Colin West who are both successful fishermen in their own right. Again both partners hold a vast experience of the fishing industry having been owner/skippers of fishing vessels, which provide us with the advantage of fishermen building boats for fishermen.
