New Zealand designed modern sail assisted Tuna Troller fishing vessel. Ergonomically focussed and worked in a very clever blending of many features considering crew and catching efficiency and thus raising the bar a notch or two for at sea time working.
.... featuring a new sail-assisted FISHING VESSEL design now with two PANGA day dories additional catching power and so Honouring / Replicating the Portuguese, and men of many nations, Grand Bank's Schooner men of yesteryear fishing far offshore and working from a Mother ship daily harvesting the elusive Tuna's so prized as human nourishment in this fishery in this instance from this design by a Fisherman and for Fishermen.
LIVE FISH TRAPPING
At the new thirty five meter length, this vessel would ideally suit ‘ Live Fish Trapping ‘ operation and outperform the Precision Harvesting Trawl system for live fish capture and delivery to market for absolutely top quality product.
Fuel cost savings, quiet while underway and an easy superb Hull action at sea offshore making this unique design highly desirable for many other marine use operations to be considered too.
This design is also focussed on a stand alone philosophy of independence ie; upper mast section can be raised or lowered onboard. Wide keel base will support careening for between tide bottom maintenance.
Aesthetically pleasing in profile, cost effective to construct in pre-cut Corten steel components, and a vessel that will be rewarding to own and operate for fleet or individual vessels.
COMMERCIAL NATURAL WILD FISH HARVESTING
I have been involved in New Zealand commercial fishing since prior to the establishment of the 200 mile economic zone around the Nation's coast and coastal extremities. As such I have witnessed all, and have been affected by anything and everything, connected to New Zealand's fisheries. I know that the Crown 'engineered' a fishery crisis by deliberately over allocating commercial catch permits which was then used as a justification for imposing a Quota Management System. That which has followed since has been even more incompetent than fishery 'management' prior to the Controlled fishery and the Quota Management start up.
Ignorance and arrogance by fisheries (and working against the established commercial catch sectors) have wrought havoc, and it is still going on to this day, amongst the commercial catching operators. Emboldened by and all the time encouraged on by the even more strident, vicious vitriolic and even more ignorant hum of the New Zealand recreational fishers sector.
The advent of 'ACTION' film (of Heroic proportions), massive over powering fish of all sizes with a bendy 'LEVER' and a geared 'WINCH' and spooled with 'UNBREAKABLE' line raised excitement to fever pitch in New Zealand and hugely increased catches and destruction of tons of fish per year in the name of 'SPORT'.
The WHEEL CHAIR, the ALCOHOLIC and the SHOWMAN FISH KILLER have a lot to answer for as they bludged and conned their way around the country, and the World, making HERO film and so many wannabe film stars have since followed this fish stock destruction hero action scene now since making it even worse.
