Icelandic boat builder, Vikingboats ehf, delivered a 13m shelter decked fishing boat to a Norwegian buyer in February.
The vessel - Vardøjenta F-190-V - is home ported in Vardø, north Norway.
The 4.24m wide vessel is type Vikingur 1300 and is equipped for longline fishing, gillnetting and for King crab, with a specially made side hatch on the starboard side for the crab pots.
The vessel has been designed for professional fishing in the North Atlantic Ocean. The sheltered deck is heated to give the best working conditions for the crew.
Vardøjenta was put to the test when it was sailed from Iceland to Norway in February through the Faroe Islands in extreme weather conditions for a boat of this size. The weather was very bad and the waves were up to 10-15m high. According to the owner, Kent Are Esbensen, the boat proved itself as “an outstanding boat in these conditions.”
There are bunk beds for four people in the cabin in two rooms, a kitchen, toilet and a shower.
The vessel is equipped with Yanmar 6YJM-WET, 700hp main engine, Danfoss Sauer load hydraulic system, bow thrusters from Sleipner, Furuno marine equipment, Fassi crane and fishing gear from Beitir ehf in Iceland.
