The Simek shipyard has signed a contract to build a 55 metre combination netter and longliner for a Godøy owner.
The new longliner for Veidar AS, based on the island of Godøy near Ålseund is set for delivery in December 2017, and this is the first time that Simek has built for this company.
The newbuild is a Rolls-Royce NVC306 design and is to be built at the Flekkefjord yard using pre-fabricated sections brought from Poland that are expected to arrive at Simek next summer for assembly and completion, while the yard will build the aluminium superstructure on site. Painting can be carried out in the yard’s covered hall, which provides optimum quality and eliminates weather-related delays.
The new Veidar longliner/netter is designed for a crew of 25 in 16 cabins.
