Damen Maaskant and New Zealand-based seafood company Sanford Limited have signed a contract for the design and build of a new scampi vessel. The vessel, based on the Damen Sea Fisher 3210, will be built to the latest standards in terms of sustainability, comfort and safety.
Both companies joined in a close cooperation for the development of a purpose-equipped and laid-out vessel for Sanford Limited’s operations in the Southern Ocean.
The fishing vessel, with a diesel-electric system and modern freezer, will be built in Stellendam at Damen Maaskant, the Damen yard specialised in fishing vessel newbuild and repair since 1948. Delivery is expected in 2025.
