Project Details

Steel-hulled motor fishing vessel, having round bilge hull, transom stern, bulbous bow, soft nose stem and with full length shelter deck. Arranged for single and twin rig trawling. Below deck she is subdivided by three watertight bulkheads into: aft accommodation with steering gear, engine room, fishroom and forepeak tank. The main deck has an athwartships, steel casing at midships for galley, mess, oilskins and washroom. Aft side has a steel shelter and integral gallow arrangement, over net drum space, continued to transom. Weathertight shelter on the forward side of the deckhouse for fish handling, fish hopper, ice machine, trawl winch and door to focsle store. Shelter deck: trawl gallows, power block crane, aluminium alloy wheelhouse, gilsen and landing crane.

Particular consideration has been given to the bow and underwater stern sections, whilst combining maximum deck space forward, load-carrying, and vessel trim throughout a trip, with propulsion efficiency and seakeeping qualities paramount. Her arrangement, with a watertight full-width bulkhead incorporated into the aft end of the steel deckhouse, separating the forward catch-handling area from the net-handling area at the transom. The watertight deck shelter is constructed with steel from the deckhouse aft to the transom, and from aluminium alloy forward, an additional bulkhead is fitted on the main deck forward of the catch reception hopper to create a dedicated winch compartment, the port side of which is extended towards amidships to provide a walk-in area housing a Geneglace 2.5-tonne ice machine and a Nilfisk pressure washer. The combination of a 13,500-litre double-bottom twin tank under the fishroom floor and two 4,000-litre wing tanks in the engine room allow 21,500 litres of fuel to be carried. A forepeak tank holds 19,700 litres of freshwater.
