New generation, new Pia Glanz
A generational shift is taking place in Thorsminde, with skipper John Christensen preparing to step back as his son Lehnert and cousin Brian KjergÃ¥rd prepare to take over, just as a new trawler/flyshooter is prepared for delivery next year.
The process of handing over the company is linked to the decision to order the new Pia Glanz L-654, a 33 metre, 9.40 metre beam combined trawler/flyshooter due for delivery from VestvÃ¦rft in Hvide Sande in the spring of next year.
John Christensen said that the process is a gradual one, as his son Lehnert already owns 30% of the company while his cousin Brian KjÃ¦rgÃ¥rd has a 10% holding.
â€˜We want to secure our future, and itâ€™s not as if Iâ€™m going too quit working,â€™ he said.
â€˜Iâ€™ve been fishing for 37 years and would like to see the younger generation taking over. Iâ€™m not stopping, but In increasingly have things I want to be doing ashore, plus we also have the Bolette L-632,â€™ he said.
The new Pia Glanz will be a larger and more sophisticated boat than the one that was delivered to the family in 2011.
â€˜I feel itâ€™s time to invest in a new vessel. Fishing looks promising and there is a good amount of fish in the sea. So we have a confidence in the future,â€™ John Christensen said.
