Icelandic boatbuilder Trefjar has delivered a new Cleopatra 50 to Bridlington fisherman Ben Woolford.
Built to fish for crab and lobster, the new Dylhàris has already started fishing and is expected to work around 1000 pots a day.
The largest design in the Trefjar range of Cleopatras, Dylhàris has twin FPT C90 engines, each turning a propeller via a ZF 286IV reduction gear. In addition to the two FPTs, there is also an 18kW Nanni genset.
Electronics in the wheelhouse are mainly from Simrad and Raytheon, and the plotters are Olex and MaxSea units.
The boat’s hydraulic bow and stern thrusters are linked to the autopilot to be activated automatically, keeping the boat effectively on course when hauling gear at slow speeds.
The midships fishroom has capacity for 22 x 660 litre tubs and is fitted with an automated sprinkler system to keep catches in peak condition.
Accommodation is below the wheelhouse, with bunks for a crew of five and a well equipped galley area.
