Trawler pair delivered by Boulogne yard

Two new trawlers designed by Coprexma were this week delivered to Erquy fishing vessel operator Armement Porcher.

Built at Socarenam in Boulogne, Sapa and Harfang are the latest deliveries in a long relationship between owner and shipyard as these two make a total of eighteen vessels over the years.

Each has a 24.99 metre overall length, with an 8.20 metre beam, and they are built to a new design with aluminium superstructure on a steel hull construction.

The two sister vessels each have a 110 cubic metre fishroom with on-board ice production capacity and a vivier tank for crabs. Sapa and Harfang are designed to work with a crew of up to seven with accommodation for six at main deck level and a skipper’s cabin in the superstructure.

Delivered in the last week of November, the two new trawlers are expected to be ready to join the company fleet in Saint-Brieuc in mid-December.
