12-year Tuna Longline Fishing Rights
The vessel is single hulled fibreglass Motor Fishing Vessel with an Overall Length of 32 m, with a Registered Length of 27.46m, Breadth 5.80m and Depth 2.45m. She has a main deck and shelter deck with one mast forward, raked stem, transom stern, with the wheelhouse located on the upper deck.
The vessel was originally built at HAN NAM Shipyard, Korea in 1994 as a tuna longliner.
She subsequently operated in South Africa as a hake trawler until 2010. She was then purchased by the current owners. A complete overhaul and refit as a Sea Freezing Hake Longliner. The vessel was stripped of all equipment and fittings, except for the main engine and gearbox.
She completed a full SAMSA Survey after refit, which included the stability test, carried out in Port Elizabeth.
During 2017 the vessel was converted back to a Tuna Longliner.

It is electrically powered winch with a KW motor.
As she was originally constructed as a longliner she has a favourable length to breadth ratio in terms of fuel efficiency and also has a bulbous bow.
Her main engine is MTU 12 V(electronic) 800hp(600kw) (certificate is incorrect) which is one of the more fuel efficient engines available.
When freezing we were using about 1ton per day. When not running freezer about 600litres per day.
This could be reduced further if intention was to operate her solely as a fresh vessel, then much smaller gensets could be installed.
She has two main fuel tanks which can carry up to +-22tons of fuel. Fresh water capacity is 20tons. She also has two ballast tanks
Which could also be used for fuel with a capacity also of about 20ton.
The vessel has two deck blasts for freezing hake in pans, has 2 main holds each with blast freezing racks in as well.
She also has two "bait" or "ice" holds in the stern. She can freeze 576 pans @ 12.5kgs each giving freezing capacity of 7ton per day.
The hold carries approximately 35ton of frozen product. She can also operate as a fresh fish vessel which we are doing at the moment in the hake sector.
She is fully shelterdecked except opening on maindeck where lines are hauled. For the hake operation she has a top and bottom line hauler
Each driven by hydraulics motors. The hydraulic system is driven by a pump off PTO on main engine.
She is surveyed to carry total crew complement including officers of 29 men.
