Allan built a total of ten boats at Leith between and Twenty-one boats were completed at Granton , his last vessel being Degrave in The first steam boats were made of wood, but steel hulls were soon introduced and were divided into watertight compartments.
They were well designed for the crew with a large building that contained the wheelhouse and the deckhouse. The boats built in the 20th century only had a mizzen sail , which was used to help steady the boat when its nets were out. The main function of the mast was now as a crane for lifting the catch ashore. It also had a steam capstan on the foredeck near the mast for hauling nets. The boats had narrow, high funnels so that the steam and thick coal smoke was released high above the deck and away from the fishermen.
These funnels were nicknamed woodbines because they looked like the popular brand of cigarette. These boats had a crew of twelve made up of a skipper , driver, fireman to look after the boiler and nine deck hands. Steam fishing boats had many advantages. This was important, as the market was growing quickly at the beginning of the 20th century. They could travel faster and further and with greater freedom from weather , wind and tide.
Because less time was spent travelling to and from the fishing grounds, more time could be spent fishing. The steam boats also gained the highest prices for their fish, as they could return quickly to harbour with their fresh catch. The main disadvantage of the steam boats, though, was their high operating costs. Their engines were mechanically inefficient and took up much space, while fuel and fitting out costs were very high.

To cover these high costs, they needed to fish for longer seasons. The higher expenses meant that more steam drifters were company-owned or jointly owned. As the herring fishing industry declined, steam boats became too expensive. Steam trawlers were introduced at Grimsby and Hull in the s.
In it was estimated that there were 20, men on the North Sea. The steam drifter was not used in the herring fishery until The last sailing fishing trawler was built in in Grimsby. Trawler designs adapted as the way they were powered changed from sail to coal-fired steam by World War I to diesel and turbines by the end of World War II.
The first trawlers fished over the side, rather than over the stern. The first purpose built stern trawler was Fairtry built in at Aberdeen. The ship was much larger than any other trawlers then in operation and inaugurated the era of the 'super trawler'. As the ship pulled its nets over the stern, it could lift out a much greater haul of up to 60 tons. Lord Nelson followed in , installed with vertical plate freezers that had been researched and built at the Torry Research Station.
These ships served as a basis for the expansion of 'super trawlers' around the world in the following decades. In recent decades, commercial fishing vessels have been increasingly equipped with electronic aids, such as radio navigation aids and fish finders. During the Cold War , some countries fitted fishing trawlers with additional electronic gear so they could be used as spy ships to monitor the activities of other countries. Globally, the number of engine-powered vessels was estimated to be 2. Conversely, the largest vessels, classified as those with LOA greater than 24 m made up about 2 percent of the total fleet.
About 1. Nearly all of these decked vessels are mechanised, and 40, of them are over tons. At the other extreme, two-thirds 1. The mile fishing limit has changed fishing patterns and, in recent times, fishing boats are becoming more specialised and standardised. In the United States and Canada more use is made of large factory trawlers , while the huge blue water fleets operated by Japan and the Soviet-bloc countries have contracted.

In western Europe, fishing vessel design is focused on compact boats with high catching power. Commercial fishing is a high risk industry, and countries are introducing regulations governing the construction and operation of fishing vessels.
