We are keen sellers and would love to see this vessel go to someone who could put their name on it from day 1, creating a fantastic legacy for their business, family, it deserves a good home, if not then we may fish it - but unfortunately this is subject to our selling some vessels to rationalise our fleet - we just have too many top quality modern fishing boats, meaning we don't have enough quota, skippers or crew - oh and then there is the financial resources - so were keen sellers.

In Survey to: NZ Coastal Fishing Vessel
Survey Company: SGSM&I
-When completed, Departure Displacement is estimated at 57 tonnes
-Fish Hold is 26m3, and will hold ~288 standard plastic bins ( 800mm x 430mm nested height 200mm )
-Due to our heavy external workload, we have undertaken work on the vessel only as resources allowed since it was put in the water back in September 2021.
The draft stability test was completed and we have now installed the final lead ballast, with the final stability test and then the final Stability Booklet to be produced in coming months.
-Bollard Pull testing was completed on 11.04.2022
Achieved 2,900 kg at 1635 rpm 100% load
Scania have confirmed the engine has full power from 1400rpm to 1800rpm so they are happy with 100% load at 1635 rpm.
This will essentially provide better fuel consumption by giving better speed and tow at a lower rpm, so is a good thing.
We ( Stark Bros Ltd ) designed and built this traditional inshore 14.5m Timber Trawler as a spec project to smooth our variable ship repair workload over the years, traditionally we have always had a timber vessel under construction - sadly this will be our last commercial Timber Fishing Vessel with no plans to build another spec vessel given the likely requirements for future vessels will more likely see larger steel vessels such as our FV Legacy / FV Endeavour, etc.
As with our other vessels we designed and built this vessel for sale, but also perhaps expecting it to be in our own long term ownership / use as for other spec vessels - so we build them to a high quality and because our main business is ship repair, we build them to be as efficient as possible in regards to maintenance, to try and reduce the long term cost of ownership.
Our fishing company catches Fresh Market Fish for local restaurant / export and also some low value bulk fish for factory processing.
This vessel is fitted with a refrigerated fish hold, with conveyors for fish handling / sorting from the main fish pound - allowing efficient transfer of fish to the refrigerated hold using less people.
We therefore provide you the following and attached information on the BRAND NEW 14.5m Timber Fishing Trawler.
We include our current indicative asking prices as below - but we are open to negotiation.
