Newbuild trawler joins Peter Hepsø Rederi fleet

A newbuild trawler was christened and welcomed into service by Norwegian fishing company Peter Hepsø Rederi on Saturday, April 6.

The 79.75- by 15.5-metre Rav was designed and built by Karstensens Skibsværft of Denmark primarily to trawl for blue whiting but may also be configured to operate as a purse seiner when fishing for mackerel and herring.

The newbuild is fitted with a Wärtsilä 31 four-stroke main engine.
