Per Lund-Hansen and Kristian Barslund Jensen, owners of ”Ocean Laura” have awarded Karstensen Shipyard with a contract to lengthen and rebuild the 24m trawler R 231 ”Ocean Laura”.
It is with great pleasure, we can announce, that Karstensen Shipyard has secured another lengthening/re-building assignment. This time it will be ”Ocean Laura” of Nexo (on the baltic island of Bornholm) who is going to be lengthened by 6m. In addition a whaleback is to be fitted, and existing wheelhouse will be raised in order to increase accommodation facilities. The vessels catch handling system will also be modified, all in a plan to improve working environment onboard and to put additional focus on the fish handling and its quality.
The order was awarded to Karstensen Shipyard in tough competition with amongst others, foreign yards.
The rebuilding is scheduled to take place in October – December 2010.
