Between 1976 and 1985 her French Registration at Camaret was CM 231629.
On the 8th June 2002 a fire broke out when she was near The Runnelstone;
Penlee and Sennen lifeboats were called in, the four crew saved by the Sennen boat;
although Anglian Prince had arrived to put out the fire, the lifeboat crews had already managed to get it under control;
the Stereden va Bro was towed back by Penlee lifeboat and Intuition (another crabber from Newlyn);
although below decks had little damage, above deck was destroyed.
The owners then set to to repair her. She has been working from Penzance for some time now.
