The new Frøya has been delivered to skipper/owner Raymond Bjørkås who intends to fish with a longline setup from Mustad system, and the boat works with a crew of three.

The 11-metre boat has a 600hp Doosan 4V158TIM main engine driving a ZF360IV gearbox. The electronics in the wheelhouse are mainly from JRC, plus there is an Olex plotter and the forward and aft side thrusters are linked to the autopilot to activate automatically when required.

The lifeboat and other safety gear are supplied by Viking.

Frøya has a midships fishroom with capacity for sixteen 660 litre tubs.

Finished to the usual high Trefjar standard, Frøya has a fully equipped galley and mess area on the port side of the wheelhouse, opposite the starboard side control position. There are four berths and toilet and shower facilities in the accommodation area below the wheelhouse.
