Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam has reached a major milestone in its construction of a 38-metre trawler for Belgium-based Rederij Long Ships. The hull has been launched into the water in Poland and has been transported to Stellendam for further outfitting. Franson is a new design, the BT3808. She features the maximum tonnage and length permitted by the Belgian Maritime Inspectorate. Maaskant have modified the vessel in order to realise a 12% increase in bollard pull during trawling.

Rederij Long Ships was founded in 1934 by the current owner’s grandfather. This latest addition to the company’s fleet will replace the vessel Z90 Francine. It will be used to fish year round in the waters of the North Sea and the Skagerak and, in the summer, the Bay of Biscay.
