Macduff delivers new Rebecca
Macduff Shipyards have recently delivered their latest newbuild to Adam, Adam Junior and Jonathan Tait of Fraserburgh. The new Rebecca is the third vessel of the same for the Tait family in less than ten years form the same yard.
Rebecca FR-143 replaces a slightly smaller trawler from 2008 that was sold earlier this year to the Stevens family in Newlyn, where it now sails as the Crystal Sea SS-118. This latest trawler for the Tait family measures 24 metres overall with a breadth of 7.80 metres and a depth of 4.20 metres. It incorporates numerous developments in hull design based on research into fluid dynamics to improve efficiency both while fishing and steaming. It has a double chine hull form with a bulbous bow and transom stern.
The layout has been designed specifically to meet the ownersâ requirements. The wheelhouse has been designed at ownersâ request with a âbay windowâ type area to port to provide a clear view over the aft working deck with minimal obstruction.
Rebecca is built for twin-rigging with a Macduff three-drum trawl winch and a pair of Macduff split net drums on the aft deck for handling trawl gear. Macduff also supplied the anchor windlass, gilson winch and two smaller gear handling winches, while the MKB13 short post crane with tilting 24-inch power block head and the MFB8 discharge crane are from Thistle.
Rebecca's twin trawl gear is spread with a 2.70 square metre, 72 inch pair of ThyborĂ¸n Type 11 trawl doors weighing 620kg.
The main engine is a Caterpillar C32 ACERT rated 660hp @ 1800rpm, close coupled to a Masson Marine reversing gearbox with a 9.077:1 reduction. Rebecca has a 2500mm propeller designed and supplied by WĂ¤rtsilĂ¤, which turns inside a matching WĂ¤rtsilĂ¤ nozzle of new design. The remaining stern gear package was designed in-house by the shipyard and produced by Macduff Precision Engineering on CNC machines.
âSea trials demonstrated encouraging results with this stern gear package with very smooth and quiet performance in all operating conditions and strong towing performance,â a Macduff spokesman said.
A Cummins QSL9 variable speed auxiliary engine, rated 330 hp @ 1800 rpm, is arranged to drive the hydraulic pumps for the deck machinery with a Centa Drive. Emergency hydraulic power is arranged with a pump fitted to a large capacity PTO on the gearbox.
Two Beta Marine generators are fitted, one to port and one to starboard, each based on a Cummins 6BT5.9D2(M) and Mecc Alte alternator, each with an output of 81.6 kW, 415/3/50.
Cooling for all the engines and the hydraulic system is provided through Blokland box coolers, supplied through European Marine.
The stern gear is manufactured by the yard and fitted with Deep Sea Seals. Hardy Engineering supplied the T700 150hp bow thruster and steering gear is from Scan Steering Aps. The oil fuel filter/separator and main engine oil fine filter are from CC Jensen. The motor-driven bilge/deckwash pumps, deck sump pumps, fuel transfer pump, cooling pump, and pressure sets are all from Bombas Azcue.
Rebeccaâs fish handling area has been customised to ownersâ desired layout and features a small watertight equipment room on the port side where a 2.5t ice machine and various machinery is kept along with another watertight room immediately aft which is used as a wet locker. The fishroom chillers and icemaker are supplied by Premier Refrigeration.
The full wheelhouse electronics package is from Woodson Marine Electronics.
Macduff Profilers, a division of the shipyard, supplied the steel kit for the vessel from cutting information supplied by Macduff Ship Design Limited and the complete vessel was fabricated, engineered and fitted out in Macduff.
