Proposals for revolutionary Australian fishing vessel
A new fishing vessel design with innovative lines is being proposed in Australia. Naval architect Paul Bury of Bury Design has made available concept drawings of a new 20 metre fishing vessel configurable for a variety of gear types.
The design features an inverted axe box configuration that provides a long waterline length, providing excellent seakeeping qualities, reducing pitching and giving reduced resistance â€“ which brings with it the benefits of better fuel efficiency and lower emissions. A vessel built to this design would be the largest in Australia with a measured length of under 20 metres.
The layout incorporates an impressive 110 cubic metre fishroom with 150mm of insulation for holding frozen catches. Aft of the forward wheelhouse is a 12.60 metre working deck that can be arranged to suit the gear type worked and the ownerâ€™s preferences. Accommodation is for a crew of six in twin berth cabins plus a skipperâ€™s cabin in the superstructure.
Bury Design envisage a diesel-electric propulsion system rather than a conventional diesel drive train, with dual motors driving and twin propellers, which adds to manoeuvrability and means there is no need for a bow thruster.
At present the design is being priced on the basis of construction being carried out at an Australian-owned shipyard in Thailand, with Australian supervisors and to AMSA/NSCV standards, and ex
