Karstensens Skibverft deliver new trawler/purse seiner to Northern Ireland

Voyager was delivered to The Voyager Fishing Company on the 8th of August this year. The new vessel, LOA 75.4 meters, was delivered Northern Ireland from Karstensens Skibsverft of Denmark. Voyager’s homeport will be Kilkeel, Northern Ireland.

The design was for the engine room to be aft, with sonar room, RSW control room and tunnel thruster compartment located forward. The berthing arrangements – for 14 people – accommodate for nine single berths, three double berths and a hospital room.

Voyager, which has a Wärtsila 16V32 engine driving a reduction gearbox and a Lips 4000 millimeter diameter propeller, also has two Caterpillar auxiliary engines, a C32 MGS and a C9.

The new vessel, which has a beam of 15.6 meters and a depth at the main deck of 7.2 meters, also has a working speed of 17.5 knots. With accommodation for up to 14 persons and a 10 fish holds, the new Voyager is prepared for everything.

All the winches and cranes are provided by Karmøy, with a CFlow vacuum pump. Voyager has a domestic fresh water capacity of 75m3 and fuel tank holding 472m3 and a tonnage of 3100GT. The RSW tanks by Midt-Troms and delivered by Norsk Kulde, have a 2465m3 capacity.
