Wave of newbuilds at Padmos yard
With new fishing vessels being built for French owners in Boulogne and Lorient, the Padmos shipyard at Stellendam in Holland has a healthy orderbook, which includes a couple of new twin-rigger/fly-shooters for Dutch owners.
Padmos has just delivered the new Mercator to SÃ©bastien and Guillaime LeprÃªtre in Boulogne and Marilou to APAK in Lorient, and sister vessels for both are due to be delivered in the spring.
â€˜We are very busy at the yard in Stellendam, and are working on two 25 metre trawler/fly-shooters for Dutch owners,â€™ commented Leon Padmos, speaking at Mercatorâ€™s christening.
â€˜One is the new UK-124, for the de Boer family who already operate the Tunis van Luut UK-224 and Wilhelmina UK-112. The other is for Klaas van den Berg and his son Klaas Jan, and is a replacement for the Hendrika Jacoba GY-127, and these two are more or less the same.â€™
UK-124 is expected to be complete in the early part of 2020, followed by GY-127 in the summer. These are 24.95 metre overall, 8.50 metre breadth vessels, and the main differences are in the deck equipment layout.
The new GY-127 replaces a 40-metre former beamer built in 1982 as GO-38, and which was initially converted to work as a twin-rigger before a subsequent refit added fly-shooting capacity.
â€˜We have never had so many newbuilds,â€™ Leon Padmos said.
â€˜But all the interest is in twin-rigging and fly-shooting. There is so much uncertainty around Brexit and the future of pulse fishing that nobody is talking about beam trawlers at the moment.â€™
