Description: Offshore - Commercial Prawn Trawler
This is a very unique opportunity to purchase a well-known NPF fishing vessel. The "Beachlands" is a 24.7 meter Prawn Trawler which was built in 1986 by EMS Holdings in Fremantle WA. This vessel has been successfully operating in the Northern Prawn Fishery (NPF) since she was built.

This vessel is powered by a Cat 3508 - 600 HP Main Engine (fully rebuilt in 2020) and 2 Cummins 6CTA Auxiliaries with 2 x 150 KVA Alternators. The Beachlands has been fitted with 3 very efficient screw compressors which run the main freezer hold, the 1 x 1.6t Ali plate deck snap in the process room and also the 2 x 1.5t Ali plate snaps in the main freezer. The main freezer holds 35 tonne of frozen product. To improve the Beachlands performance further, the owners have also installed a bulbous bow, a larger Mikado prop, new larger nozzle together with a 6 to1 ratio gearbox which has delivered very economical fuel consumption figures. It has a very large, well designed prawn hopper, sorting conveyor and processing equipment.

The Beachlands has been well maintained by her current owners with many beneficial upgrades over the years. The vessel will also be sold with the lease opportunity of an NPF Licence if required for the 2021 Tiger Season only. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well maintained NPF 25m Trawler in full AMSA Survey currently fishing in the Northern Prawn Fishery. This opportunity is only available because the owners have taken delivery on their new 30m NPF Trawler.
