Thyborøn company Lynge Fiskeri, with its two new shareholders Claus Møller Pedersen and Fredrik Toftegaard, has acquired Hanstholm trawler Karen Nielsen HM-127 and renamed it Myggenæs HM-227 – and has also placed an order for a new vessel to be delivered at the end of next year.
When the previous trawler/fly-shooter Myggenæs was sold to Norway last year, Hanstholm fishermen Claus Møller Pedersen and Fredrik Toftegaard bought into Lynge Fiskeri. This latest Myggenæs will operate from Hanstholm, with the partners alternating as skipper.
They have also placed an order for a new 36 metre LOA, 10.50 metre breadth fishing vessel that is expected to be delivered to Skagen for fitting out in June next year, and to be ready for delivery in December 2021.
There are a number of innovations included in the plans for the new Myggenæs, including an electric deck machinery system, minimising noise levels on board and contributing towards a better environmental footprint. The new vessel will have a Yanmar main engine.
