A new beam trawler, Avanti, has been handed over by Damen Maaskant shipyard to the Devan Shipping Company of Belgium. The hull was built in Poland and the outfit completed at the yard in Stellendam, Netherlands.
Based on Damen Shipyards’ BT3808 design, various modifications raise efficiency and ensure that the Avanti meets the Belgian fishing company’s requirements. Marine technology firm SIP Marine was engaged to modify the basic design for improved fuel consumption and hauling power.
Hull resistance has been reduced by adopting an imprinted anode system, thereby eliminating the need for anodes on the hull. The Avanti has a cold room rather than refrigerators for provisions, and the trawler’s design corresponds to the maximum length and tonnage allowed under Belgian maritime regulations.
