The Xmas Rose FR 125 (Yard No. 16) was built for William Tait & Partners, Inverallochy. She has been renamed and renumbered twice as Defiance (FR 125 and FR 385) but now seine pairs with another Campbeltown-built boat, Budding Rose, as the Lapwing PD 972 out of Peterhead. Her current skipper is Brian Buchan.
