Newbuild gill netter/longliner awaits next chapter
Iceland’s Stormur Seafoods has taken delivery of a longliner/gill netter and immediately placed the newbuild for sale.
Recently completed at the Alkor Shipyard in Poland, Stormur started life in Newfoundland and was never completed due to the then-owner’s financial issues.
The seafood firm’s Steindór Sigurgeirsson found the boat and took it to Gdansk to be completed.
Equipped for freezing or handling fresh catches, it features diesel-electric propulsion, a 63,000-hook Mustad longlining hardware and a system of handling the gear through a chamber below the surface.
