OWNER: Prestfjord Seafood A/S (Norway)

DESIGNER: Kongsberg Maritime

One of world’s most advanced fishing vessels, this modern stern trawler is arranged with triple trawl and pelagic trawl for catching white fish and shrimps on Arctic waters. Designed with a special focus on gentle fish handing and optimized for bottom and mid-water trawling, the vessel is equipped with modern and automated fish processing equipment, including a meal plant, and a total hold capacity of 2250 m3.
