The Danish Shipyard Vestvæflet ApS recently secured the order to build a 27m whitefish vessel at Hvide Sande for the Bremner Fishing Company Ltd of Wick, reports David Linkie.

A profile of the new Boy Andrew should have been included in Fishing News last week ‘Danish built seine netter for Bremner Fishing Company’ but apologies for the production difficulties that prevented this from going ahead as intended.

With an overall length of 27m, a registered length of 23.95m, 7.7m beam and a depth to shelterdeck of 6.2m, Boy Andrew will feature a round bilge hull designed in-house by Vestvæflet ApS.

Fishing activities will be focused towards the stern of the full-length shelterdeck, with catches being bagged on the starboard side of the transom. After being released into a reception hopper arranged on the watertight main deck, fish will be moved by conveyor forward to amidships for selection, gutting and washing in a fully integrated circular style of fish-handling system that is well proven for delivering maximum catch quality.

The seine net ropes will be hauled and shot from two large capacity power reels mounted on top of the shelterdeck abaft the wheelhouse. Driven by 2-speed motors delivering a core pull of 20t, the power reels will accommodate 20 coils of 40mm seine net rope.

Three seine nets will be carried ready to shoot on 2 x 12t split net drums. Two of the net drums will be positioned towards the transom, with the third mounted further forward on the vessel’s centreline. Hydraulically operated towing blocks will be fitted across the aft gantry to deliver optimum leads when hauling back the seine net ropes. This deck machinery, together with the codend winch, will be manufactured by JJJ of Thyborøn.

The power block and landing cranes will be supplied by Thistle Marine of Peterhead.

The NEW Boy Andrew’s centerline propulsion package will feature a Caterpillar 3508C Tier II complaint main engine (577kW @ 1200rpm), Mekanord 450HS 6.47:1 reduction gearbox and a matching Korsor  2500mm diameter CP propeller and nozzle. The main hydraulic systems will be generated by two PTOs on the main engine driving Rexroth load sensing pumps.

Boy Andrew is designed to carry around 1,100 boxes in the step free fishroom, 31,000 litres of fuel and 26,000 litres of freshwater for domestic and ice making requirements.

Accommodation for eight men on this new class of vessel will be arranged in a combination of single and twin berth cabins at main deck level, together with the galley and messdeck.
