Day Star - Yard No 036

Main Articles

The Daystar was the first of our specially designed new class of ‘round bilge’ trawlers, the brainchild of our dedicated marine architect Ian Paton and resulting from his extensive fluid dynamics analysis which showed this type of layout offers much greater fuel efficiency

She is prawn trawler featuring a customised, three-barrel, two-speed trawl winch (35 tonnes) with a drum capacity for 750 fathoms of 22mm-diameter wire, two two-by-12 tonne split net drums, a seven-five tonne Gilson winch and two auxiliary gear-handling winches.  The vessel houses 20,000 litres of fuel in four tanks, including two double-bottomed tanks under the floor of the fish room, which has a working capacity of 950 boxes. 19,000 litres of fresh water are carried in its bulbous bow tank, which supplies a 2.5-tonne Geneglace ice machine
