Last of Gléhen trawler trio delivered

A second new trawler for Plobannalec-Lesconil skipper Julien le Brun has been delivered by Chantier Naval Gléhen, the last of a series three vessels built to the same Coprexma design.

The first was Caraïbes II, for Julien le Brun, followed by Stéphane le Bec’s Kronos and the third is Corail, also built for Julien le Brun. The Gléhen yard at Douarnenez in western Brittany is also currently building a sister vessel for bara Breizh for Armement Bigouden.

Julien le Brun’s requirements were the new trawler were for a modern, efficient, 15 metre trawler with plenty of accommodation space, separate from working areas and sound insulated. He wanted an efficient vessel with a large propeller and capacity for holding live catches.

Corail is designed primarily for fishing langoustine and the trawler has twin tanks on board, each capable of holding 350kg, as well as a 20 cubic metre fishroom. The main engine is a Caterpillar C18 driving an 1830mm diameter propeller via a Masson gearbox. Bopp supplied the twin trawl winches capable of holding 800 metres of 18mm warp and the three net drums mounted over the stern.

Coprexma has more than thirty years of experience in this sector and has been a leading fishing vessel designer, mainly for the French fleet. The company’s founders Jean-François Ansquer and Gilles Rolland and their team have a track record of more than five hundred vessels of all kinds behind them, and several innovative designs currently under construction.
