Built and laid out for fishing nephrops with traps, Bajas has a deck equipment setup and sorting table supplied by Trefjar, and the midships fishroom is fitted with a spray system to keep catches alive and in peak condition.
The fishroom is arranged for twelve 380 litre tubs, and can also be used with smaller boxes.
Bajas has a 500hp FTP C90 main engine in the aft engine space driving a a ZF V-drive. Electronics are from JRC and Furuno, and include an autopilot linked to the hydraulic side thruster.
There is a heated oilskin store and a toilet with a shower. Accommodation forward provides bunks for three, as well as a fully-equipped galley and mess area.
