Sille Marie joins Norwegian enterprise

Sille Marie

Karstensen yard delivers new pelagic trawler to Sille Marie AS, a relatively young venture between Carl Aamodt and the Salthaug family from Sogne

New Sillie Marie replaces an older vessel acquired from Sweden when the venture got underway in 2015, and which has since been sold and is back under the Swedish flag. The business is managed by Carl Aamodt, while the Salthaug family does what they do best, with skipper Bastian Salthaug, Yngvar Salthaug and chief engineer Tobias Salthaug fishing for industrial species and for mackerel and herring for human consumption. The new trawler also has options for handling whitefish, with a processing area outfitted by BoaTech with a pair of KM Fish gutting machines.

The order for the new 65.9-metre, 14-metre beam vessel with a 1,726 cubic metre capacity in its RSW tanks was placed in July 2021 and the hull was built in at the Karstensen yard in Poland before being brought to Skagen for outfitting. Sille Marie has been built to the yard’s own design, optimised in collaboration with the owners.
