Detailed Selling Lead Description

Subject: Damen delivers first new Beam Trawler in 12 years with Optima nozzles


Damen has delivered the first new beam trawler to take to the North Sea in
twelve years. Over the last ten months, Damen Maaskant Shipyards
Stellendam (Maaskant) has outfitted the 41-metre hull from stock. The vessel,
designated UK 46, is for Hakvoort Brothers, based in Urk, the Netherlands. A
key feature of the vessel is the installation of twin Optima nozzles manufactured
by Damen Marine Components (DMC). This is the first time that Maaskant has
installed these in a fishing boat.

The nozzles are Damen Optima L/D 0.4 models with a diameter of 3.63 metres.
The stainless-steel collars surrounding the propellers deliver improved thrust
both ahead and astern and so require less engine output for a given speed. In
addition, they also enhance performance at low speeds and give less
resistance at higher speeds.

The fishing winch also represents a milestone for both Maaskant and DMC. It is
the first such winch to be manufactured by DMC and was built to a design by
Maaskant. A third Damen company also played a role in the fit-out of UK 46,
with Damen Anchor & Chains supplying their trademark products to the

“It’s been a real pleasure to complete this trawler and see her afloat at last, and
to work with our sister companies to make it a success,” says Eric Moerkerk,
deputy director at Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam. “The hull has been
here at Maaskant for more than ten years and we have long looked forward to it
being out at sea where it belongs. This is the first time that we have fitted a
trawler with nozzles and while it is early days for the vessel, the indications are
that she is working well and the nozzles are delivering the expected efficiencies.
The next three fishing boats that we will be building will also be fitted with
nozzles from DMC.”

Kees Oevermans at Damen Marine Components added; “The cooperation
between DMC and Maaskant has been very good and fast. We worked closely
with all the relevant departments including the project management and design
functions. The benefit of this partnership for the client is that when our products
arrive at the yard, everything fits and performs as promised.”

Beam trawlers use outrigger booms to tow two trawls, one on each side. In the
North Sea they are commonly used to catch shrimp and flatfish. The last such
fishing boat to join the Dutch fishing fleet was the Catharina KW-145, launched
in 2006. Prior to that, Maaskant delivered two others; the Cornelia BR- 14 in
2004 and the Jan Cornelis GO-22 in 2006. Both these were also built to the
Damen Maaskant design.
