Detailed Selling Lead Description

Subject: Damen Maaskant scores second twin-rigger contract


Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam has secured another contract to build
a twin-rig fly shooting fishing trawler; this time for brothers Rense and Johannes
de Boer. This is Damen Maaskant’s second fishing trawler contract in as many
months, following close behind the contract to build the 32-metre long Spes
Nova that was signed in November.

Although the new vessel, to be named Meindert Senior, will have the same
Vripack naval architects design as the Spes Nova, it displays some major
differences. At 31 metres long with a beam of 9 metres, the Meindert Senior will
be able to operate with a gross tonnage of less than 400 tonnes. Furthermore,
the new vessel will have a conventional diesel propulsion configuration.

An established relationship
This will not be the first Damen-built vessel in Rense and Johannes de Boer’s
fleet, as Eric Moerkerk, Deputy Director at Damen Maaskant Shipyards
Stellendam, explains: “The De Boer brothers already have two vessels from us:
the LT60 and the UK195.”

“In fact, our relationship with their family goes back even further as their father
built a cutter here 25 years ago. So we are extremely pleased to be working
with them again with this new trawler.”

Natural trim
The relationship with designer and naval architect Vripack has been taken to
the next level as they were the creatives behind the bigger sister vessel as well.
“By rearranging the traditional lay-out we ensured that the ship trims as
naturally as possible. Fishing vessels traditionally trim aft a bit, especially with a
full hold. This adversely affects the ideal streamline of the vessel, resulting in
less comfort at sea and higher fuel consumption. The weight components are
more evenly distributed under varying conditions when placing the wheelhouse
and the fish hold a bit forward,” explains Ierring Faber, Naval Architect at

Construction of Meindert Senior’s hull will take place in Poland, followed by
outfitting at Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam. Delivery is scheduled for
Q2 2019.
