23.95m Lobster Fishing Vessel

23.95m Lobster Fishing Vessel

Another new 23.95m lobster fishing vessel has been commissioned for Bass Marine of Port Denison and scheduled for launch in late 2018. Having an overall length of 25.4m, the new vessel will share the crown of largest cray fishing vessel in Australia with the latest 23.95m launch for Tebco Fishing, also due for delivery in 2018. Physical dimensions are where the similarities stop though.

The new vessel will feature a raised wheelhouse, providing improved visibility and greater interior volume. As a result, she will accomodate up to 13 crew and have a live tank capacity of 204 baskets. As a multipurpose utility vessel, heavy duty cranes will be able to be installed on the aft deck for work in the oil and gas sector.

The new vessel is a combined build between Geraldton based Xtreme Marine and Port Denison based Dongara Marine. It will feature the same composite wheelhouse and aluminium hull arrangement as seen on the recent pilot boats and new generation fishing boats.
