Built at the Trefjar yard in Iceland, a new 10.99 metre netter has been delivered to skipper/owner Otto Harold Williassen who fishes from Digermulen in Norway’s Lofoten islands.
Karin is an 11gt Cleopatra 36, rigged for netting, with deck equipment and fishing gear all sourced locally after delivery, and the new boat has already started fishing.
The classic Trefjar layout has the engine space with the 650hp FPT C13 main engine driving a ZF325IV gear placed aft and the fishroom with capacity for fifteen 360 litre tubs amidships.
Safety equipment on board Karin has been delivered by Viking.
The forward wheelhouse leaves a spacious working deck with a semi-shelter on the port side, with access to the engine room through the aft deck house and the oilskin store from the deck.
Accommodation is in the forward section with bunks for three below, along with a shower and toilet. The wheelhouse is laid out with the skipper’s control position on the starboard side, facing the JRC, Olex and Simrad electronics displays. The hydraulic bow thruster is linked to the autopilot to activate automatically when required.
The large galley and mess area are on the port side of the wheelhouse.
