A fishing boat is a small type of vessel used by people for catching fish. Many of these have been seen around Bigg City Port and up-river.

The shrimpers are also a type of fishing boat, but catch shrimps instead.


After TUGS' production ended, a model of a fishing boat was sold to Brit Allcroft, the creator of the Thomas & Friends television series. The model appeared in Thomas & Friends on-set during seasons 3-5 and was used as a mail boat.
