FV Rockfish – 19.9m Demersal Fish Trawler

Price: POA

Fisheries Asset Brokers presents a lead vessel in Australian fish trawling, the FV Rockfish. The vessel is For Sale, fully equipped and ready to fish. The current owners’ attention to detail and pursuit of efficiency has resulted in a vessel that is lean on running costs, effective at catching fish at a range of depth and bottom types whilst producing signature high quality market fish that is sought after by major wholesalers. Running a 650HP CAT 3412, the vessel tows comfortably at 3 knots and has a steaming speed of 9.8 knots. Fuel consumption is approx. 1200L / 24hr period with the main and 2 x auxiliaries in constant operation. The vessel employs a modern trawl system with a 3D imaging net-sensor system and purpose built nets included in the sale. The fish room is 63 m3  and comes with 3T/day salt-water ice-maker. The batwing stabilisers have enhanced the at-sea performance of this vessel and the owner has recently invested in new hydraulic pumps and pipework servicing the fishing gear and anchor winch. At 19.9m x 6.0m x 3.2m (with bulbous bow) and in current AMSA 3B Survey, this vessel is in excellent condition and well-suited to various trawl and danish-seine fisheries in Australia and New Zealand.
