Matthew Atkin’s photos of fishing boats at Agadir


My globe-trotting brother Matthew Atkin has been out taking more of his stunning photos – this time of the fishing boats of Agadir, Morocco, with their striking and graceful high bows.

Wonderful stuff. Thanks Matt!

PS – if you enjoyed these shots, take a squiz at Matt’s collection of shots from the fishing port at Casablanca.

My recently married friends Eve and Ed Birch very kindly took these striking photos of a shipbuilding yard at Essaouira in Morocco, where they travelled for their honeymoon. Thanks for remembering us Eve and Ed!

Traditional wooden boat building at Agadir, Morocco, snapped  by Spider T owner Mal Nicholson while on a holiday recently. It’s rough old stuff, but it’s traditional boat building on a commercial basis, and clearly not for the yacht trade.

Where do boat enthusiasts go on their holidays? Somewhere with boats and ships, most likely – if water-borne craft can be found, the old boat nut in your family will find them.
