Kristiansund yard Jemar Norpower has delivered a new 38-foot Malo Sjark to the Hevrøy family from Austevoll, who won’t be steaming home, but who will instead be taking the new boat north to Svolvær to start netting.
The new Hevrøy is owned by skipper Henrik Hevrøy, along with his father Oddvar and brother Andreas.
Hevrøy measures 11.58 metres overall, with a 4.45 metre beam, and the original 36-foot length is extended to 38 feet by the stern flaps which boost its speed.
The engine is a 9-litre, 300hp Nogva Scania D109 70M driving a four-bladed Nogva wing propeller via an HC-168 reduction gear. Sleipner Hydraulisk supplied the 320hp bow and stern thrusters.
The roomy wheelhouse forward has a galley and mess area on the port side and the skipper’s control position is on the starboard side. There are three berths below, as well as a toilet, shower and storage.
Hevrøy is rigged or netting with deck equipment from Lorentzen Hydraulikk, including a 1000kg net hauler and stacker, as well as winches for the boom and the mizen sail.
The port side is fitted with a shelter and gear is handled over the starboard side. There is ample deck space and there is an 18 cubic metre fishroom below.
‘It’s a pleasure to deliver a Malo Sjark to the Bergen area,’ said Jemar Norpower’s general manager Johs Ersnes.
‘We’re also pleased to see that the younger generation is investing in the fishing industry,’ he added.
