Polyvalent Fishing Vessel Refit : "ILE MAURICE"

We had to transform this 20 years old gillnetter into a a polyvalent gillnetter/trawler ship.

We needed to redesign the hull in order to increase stability, seakeeping ability and payload.

The specificaly designed spansons help increase the propeller efficiency at low speed to reduce fuel consumption while increasing the thrust. 

This work was done under the supervision of Bureau Veritas with some financial help of the EEC fishing program.
