Larsnes Mek Verksted will fit out and complete a Skipsteknisk-designed pelagic trawler ordered by Zephyr Fishing of Scotland.

The hull of the 75- by 15-metre Zephyr was built by Marine Projects of Gdansk and is scheduled to arrive at Larsnes Mek Verksted’s yard in Western Norway within this week.

The vessel will have a crew of 14 and a Wärtsilä 12V33 6,960kW main engine that can deliver a speed of 17 knots.

Delivery of the completed Zephyr is scheduled for the summer of 2019.
