Cleopatra pair for Norway

Trefjar in Hafnarfjörður has completed a pair of almost identical Cleopatra 31 fishing boats for owners in Norway.

Emmy has been built for Alsvåg fisherman Trygve  Magnus Johnsen and I has gone to Ove Alvestad who fishes from Sortland, both of them based in the north of Norway.

They both intend to skipper the boats themselves, each with two crew.

Emmy and Ea each measure 9.60 metres and are 9gt, and are rigged for a variety of static gear fisheries – netting, longlining and jigging. The netting hardware has been sourced in Norway, while the two boats were delivered with DNG jigging reels and Beitir longline haulers.

Each has a midships fishroom with capacity for fourteen 380 litre tubs.

Each aft engine room has a 420hp FPT N67 engines driving a ZF 286IV gearbox.

Emmy and Ea are fitted out with Simrad, Furuno and Olex electronics, and each has a hydraulic bowthruster linked to the autopilot to keep position at slow speeds when hauling gear.

Both boats have a well-equipped galley and berths for three crew below in the forward section.
