New trawler being built at Spanish shipyard

A new trawler is scheduled for delivery in 2016 from Freire Shipyard in Vigo in Spain. This shipyard has been building boats ever since 1895 and it is well known for its quality and advanced technology.

This trawler will be christened the “Holmøy'” and it will replace the Langøy which has been operating for us since 2008.

Our new trawler will be 69 metres long and 17 metres wide. It will be equipped with all the latest technology and capable of sailing further into the fishing grounds and being away for longer at a time.

Fish are constantly on the move and we are equipping ourselves to follow them. This trawler is being built so that it can freeze gutted, headless fish, but it can rapidly be converted into a filleting factory if this turns out to be more profitable.

The cost of building the “Holmøy” amounts to approx. NOK 280 million.
