The SÓMI, produced at Batasmidja Gudmundar, has been a favourite vessel among successful fishermen all around Iceland and elsewhere.

The SÓMI is an outstanding workboat with excellent deck space, voluminous fish holds and exceptional carrying capacity. Working conditions aboard these boats rank with the best in this size category and even surpass much larger boats.

Wheelhouse equipment includes all controls as well as electronic navigational and fish-finding equipment and a chart table. The comfortable cabin features rugged teak fittings, benches, table, lockers as well as a galley and head.

The standard engine in the SÓMI series is a Volvo Penta diesel engine with direct drive or inboard/outboard delivering a performance of up to 30 knots. The normal, comfortable cruising speed is 20-24 knots. This exceptional speed is achieved by the boat's planing ability, which reduces drag and improves fuel economy in the bargain.

We take care to select only the best available equipment for our SÓMI boats, but of course all boats can be fitted out according to our customers' wishes.
