New Contract: NEWBUILDING NO. 417 "PAULA"

Ownership consists of the Doyle family of Killybegs, Ireland, headed by Michael (Mick) Doyle. The vessel is named after Mrs Doyle, who is also a director in the company.


Mick Doyle is well-known and long established owner/skipper in the Irish pelagic fleet. Mr Doyle took delivery of his first new-built vessel (“Venture”) in 1971. This vessel followed predecessors ”Primula” and ”Marie Avril”. Skipper Doyles fourth command and second newbuilding was “Paula” in 1980, followed by another “Paula” in 1994. Mr Doyle retired from sea several years ago, leaving the helm in the capable hands of Tom Doyle (not related), who will also be in command of the new vessel. Onboard is also Mr Doyles son, Michael, who is currently training for his skippers ticket.


The owners are working a traditional pelagic trawl fishing, with mackerel and horse mackerel being main species of target. The new vessel will be operating according to same principles.


The new vessel will have an overall length of 62,60 m, a beam of 12,80 m and depth to shelter deck of 7,80 m. The vessel will be very similar in design to yard number 415 “Gollenes”.


Main engine will be a Caterpillar C280-12, at 3000 kW, similar to Caterpillar engine on existing “Paula”. Gearbox and propeller plant (ø3800 mm) will be supplied by Scana Volda. Auxiliary engines will also be supplied by Caterpillar.


Deck machinery; winches and cranes will be supplied by Karmøy Winch.


Karstensen Shipyard are delighted with this new contract. The yard has a long standing connection with Irish owners, having built a total of 8 pelagic vessels to the Killybegs fleet. In addition another 2 Karstensen built vessels has been purchased second-hand, and are now Irish registered. All of the above mentioned deliveries are now also regular costumers in the shipyard for maintenance jobs. Obviously this has been noted by Mr Doyle who draw the conclusion that “it cant be all bad what they are doing in Skagen, since the vessels keeps going back ”…
