Ålesund fisherman Stein Magne Hoff has taken delivery of the new Tare, a Cleopatra 42 built at the Trefjar yard in Hafnarfjörður in Iceland. Built to operate as a longliner, Tare is expected to also be used as an angling vessel, as well as for training purposes by the local maritime college.
Stein Magne Hoff is skippering the 12.50 metre Tare himself, working with two crew.
Tare has a midships fishroom with capacity for nineteen 380 litre tubs and there are twin 440hp Yanmar 6LYA2-STP main engines in the aft engine compartment, each driving a ZF 286IV reduction gear.
The wheelhouse is laid out with the control position to starboard with mainly Furuno electronics, an Olex plotter system and an autopilot linked to the bow thruster to activate automatically as required when manoeuvring at slow speeds.
On the port side of the wheelhouse is a well-equipped galley and mess area. Accommodation is below in the forward section, with three berths and a toilet and shower.
