Vestværft has been contracted to build a new trawler/fly-shooter for fisherman Martin Kynde of Thyborøn.

The new vessel will have an LOA of 23.95 metres, a width of 7.4 metres, a crew of eight including two spare deckhands, and a carrying capacity of around 900 boxes.

Named Tove Kynde, it will be delivered in 2020 to replace a similarly named wooden-hulled vessel originally built in 1973.
