The crab fishing vessel “Cape Navarin” was launched in Nakhodka. This is the 4th crab catcher, which is being built based on the results of auctions with investment obligations commissioned by the Antey Group of Companies.
The first three vessels for the Antey Group of Companies were launched in 2022, and now these vessels are undergoing commissioning and preparation for mooring and sea trials.
A series of eight crab catchers ordered by the Antey Group of Companies was solemnly laid down in June 2020 at the Nakhodka Shipyard.
The ship "Cape Navarin" is being built according to a unique modern design developed by a Russian company. The vessel's seaworthiness is improved due to the optimal ratio of its length and width and straight bow. This design ensures safety and comfortable conditions for both the crew and the crab’s life support.
The crab catcher is designed for catching and transporting live crab in the Bering, Barents and Okhotsk seas. The vessel will be able to store up to 120 tons of live crab in 9 RSW tanks with a total volume of 680 cubic meters.
Characteristics of the crab fishing vessel:
- length - 57.7 meters
- width - 12.6 meters
- maximum draft according to strength conditions - 5 m
- maximum speed - 12 knots.
