On November 17th, Nauta Shipyard launched a newly built partly outfitted fishing vessel for its Danish client. It was the sixth launching ceremony in Newbuilding Division this year.
CLIPPERTON (B-438) is a vessel designed for pelagic trawling. She is 63 m long and almost 13 m wide with the draft of 5.5 m. B-C Pelagic AB of Sweden will be the final owner of the ship.
CLIPPERTON was commissioned by Karstensens Skibsvaerft AS. She is already the twelfth unit which has been built for this client. The Danish client has been cooperating with Nauta for a number of years - presently five vessels for Karstensens Skibsvaerft AS are under construction in Nauta Yard. In total there are 12 vessels for different customers from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom in shipyard’s orderbook.
Nauta specializes in building modern fishing vessels. Since the opening of Newbuilding Division in Gdańsk in September 2013, Nauta has already signed contracts for building 22 fishing vessels. Another important area of the activity of shipyard’s Newbuilding Division activity is a construction of research units as well as service offshore vessels. What is more, Nauta has recently signed an important contract for building a ship platform for the special purpose Signal Intelligence vessel for the Swedish Navy.
