Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam recently delivered a new beam trawler to Belgian family-owned fishing company Devan.

The design of the 38-metre-long Avanti spans the maximum length and tonnage allowed by Belgian maritime regulations. Specific modifications were also incorporated to make the vessel specially suited to its owner’s fishing methods.

The trawler’s hull was built and launched in Gdansk in Poland and then finished in Stellendam. Damen claims the vessel was finished within the agreed timeframe despite all the consequences of the pandemic.
