ASMAR Delivers Dona Eugenia
— First Of New Seiner Design ASMAR, Chile's leading shipbuilder and repairer, recently delivered a 60-foot fishing vessel that is the first of a new design built of fiberglass-reinforced plastic (GRP) to her owner, Sociedad Pesquera Palacios Ltd. of Chile. The vessel, designed as a purse seiner and named Dona Eugenia, was built at ASMAR's Valparaiso yard and was specially adapted for crabbing operations—her owners are one of Chile's largest exporters of shellfish.
A spokesman for Sociedad Pesquera Palacios said that the vessel was particularly well suited to the area of activity of the company.
He added that further orders for this type of vessel were likely to be placed with ASMAR.
The Dona Eugenia will operate in the crab and other shellfish beds south of Puerto Montt.
This particular design of vessel, the ASMAR 1800, is a multi-purpose fishing boat and was designed under a cooperation contract with Cygnus Marine Limited of Penryn in Cornwall, U.K. The mold was constructed entirely at ASMAR's Valparaiso yard.
The 60-foot Dona Eugenia has a beam of 20 feet, depth of 9.8 feet, and hold capacity of approximately 80 cubic meters. She is powered by a 222-bhp diesel engine giving a maximum speed of 10 knots. Accommodations are provided for a crew of eight.
It is expected that other Chilean owners will place orders with ASMAR for this particular design, and up to 12 vessels a year could be constructed at the Valparaiso yard.
