Ownership consists of brothers Andreas and Kurt Leine, who took over the family run business in 1997, and had the present “Leinebjørn” built in 2001. The owners are working a combined trawl- and purse net fisheries, with trawling mainly focused on blue whiting west​of Ireland. Other species being targeted are mainly herring and mackerel, which are caught in the purse net. The new vessel will be operating according to same principles.

The new vessel will have an overall length of 67,50 m, a beam of 13,50 m and depth to shelter deck of 8,80 m.

Main engine will be a Caterpillar C280-12, at 3000 kW, similar to Caterpillar engine on existing “Leinebjørn”. Gearbox and propeller plant (ø4000 mm) will be supplied by Scana Volda. Auxiliary engines will also be supplied by Caterpillar.
