Navimon is due to receive three tuna longliners from Piriou by the end of the year.

In October 2017, Navimon ordered a series of eight 20.7m longliners built by Piriou and dedicated to tuna longline fishing in the New Caledonia Economic Exclusive Zone. The first two vessels were delivered and reached their homeport by the end of 2018. The order for three sister ships was signed at the same time.

Vincent Faujour, CEO of Piriou Group, said: “Following our latest orders of trawlers for metropolitan France, of a 67m oceanic tuna fishing vessel and the recent delivery of 60 and 63m longliners for La Reunion island, this confirmation of the third part of the contract for the eight longliners series strengthens our presence in the artisanal and industrial fishing in collectivities and overseas territories as well as in France.”

Strength in numbers

Florent Pithon, general manager of Navimon, added: “Operating the first two vessels for more than a year reinforced our technical choices and confidence in the Piriou team which led us to continue the programme together.”

PIRIOU built the eight longliners of Navimon’s fleet between 1998 and 2000, as well as the first two units of this new generation, which have been utilised for nearly one year and fulfil the shipowner’s requirements. These new units are designed to improve crew comfort and security, make maintenance operations easier, optimize expenses and answer the issues related to security and environment compliance.

Navimon is a subsidiary of the semi-public company SODIL.
