Cleopatra 50B for Norwegian fishing company
The latest delivery by Icelandic boatbuilder Trefjar is a 15 metre shelterdecked autoliner for owners in Myre in Norway.
Einar has been built for Icelandic fisherman Ólafur Einarsson, who relocated to Norway some years ago. The new vessel was delivered by the yard in Hafnarfjörður and steamed across to Myre by its owner, who also operates a second Cleopatra 50B, which was acquired second-hand.
The new longliner has a Mustad autoline system, with the hauler located in a separate compartment, and the baiting machine, racks and other equipment inside the shelterdeck. Deck equipment for handling catches is from Lavango and Stálorka, and the ice machine and pre-chiller system are supplied by Kæling.
Einar is laid out with an engine room aft, with an 800hp Doosan 4V222TI main engine driving a ZF665 V-gear. In addition, there is a 50kW Scam/FPT/Linz genset. Ásafl supplied the ARG375 gyroscopic stabilising system and the TMP500L landing crane.
The fishroom with capacity for 76 x 460 litre tubs is amidships and the accommodation is located the forward section, with bunks for a crew of up to six in four cabins. Einar has a fully equipped galley and mess areas, as well as a toilet, shower and facilities for washing and drying clothes, all of which makes Einar suitable for working longer trips if required.
The wheelhouse electronics have been supplied and fitted by Larsen Elecom, including a link between the autopilot and the stern and aft thrusters, which start up automatically to keep the boat on course when hauling the line at slow speeds.
