New seiner/trawler delivered to Norway’s Alta Fiskeriselskap


Norwegian fishing company Alta Fiskeriselskap recently took delivery of a new vessel from local builder Stadyard.

The 40.5-metre Jens Kristian is equipped for purse seining and trawling as well as transport of live catch and silage.

Construction of the Seacon-designed Jens Kristian had originally been entrusted to Polish builder Poltramp Yard. However, the unfinished vessel was transferred to Stadyard for completion after Poltramp filed for bankruptcy in 2019.
