Belgian family-owned fishing company Rederij Long Ships has contracted Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam to build a new 38-metre-long beam trawler.
The vessel will sail under the name Franson. It is set to replace Rederij Long Ships’ current beam trawler, Francine.
Franson will be designed for fishing year-round in North Sea and Skagerak waters, in addition to the summer season in the Bay of Biscay.
