The boat was built in 1978. it was used for fishing within the Szczecin Lagoon for a number of years. In the 21st century, due to fishing limitations introduced by the Polish law as well as that of the European Union, continually rising maintenance costs of vessels and reduction of fish resources within the Lagoon, a number of fishermen had to resign from their profession. After 2004 owners or operators of Polish fishing boats were entitled to financial compensation in return for, among other things, scrapping a vessel. In connection with the fact that Nowe Warpno had always been connected with the fishing industry, the decision was taken that one of the fishing bots would be preserved and would decorate a square in the town. On completion of relevant formalities WAR-52 fishing boat became a tourist attraction.
