Siglufjörður fishing company Rammi has placed an order for a new fresher trawler to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2023.
The 48 metre LOA, 14 metre beam trawler has been designed by Nautic and features the distinctive inverted EnduroBow arrangement that has already been a success for a number of trawlers that have joined the Icelandic fleet in recent years.
The new trawler also brings Nautic back together with the Celiktrans shipyard in Turkey, continuing a fruitful co-operation that previously produced Brim’s fresher trawlers Engey, Akurey and Viðey.
Construction of the new trawler begins right away, according to Nautic’s chairman and naval architect Alfreð Tulinius.
‘We are looking forward to delivering this innovative, modern fishing vessel to Rammi, and also looking forward to continuing Nautic’s longstanding and successful relationship with the Celiktrans shipyard,’ he said.
Rammi’s new vessel will be equipped with four trawl winches, enabling it to operate with three trawls.
There is a 285 square metre catch handling deck, which is a completely clear space with no supporting pillars required, achieved by the use of smart engineering of the hull and bulkhead structures to attain the required structural strengths.
The 630 cubic metre fishroom has space for 590 x 440-litre tubs, providing a carrying capacity of approximately 185 tonnes.
Accommodation is for a crew of up to 16 in single and twin cabins.
The main engine will have a 1795kW output, derated from 2100kW, powering a 3800mm diameter propeller to generate a 45 tonne bollard pull. Auxiliary power will be provided by a pair of 600kW gensets.
