Day Dawn & Holdfast

 I see there has been a new bigger and better cray boat built since Day Dawn, Holdfast....

 

Does anyone know what Holdfast cost to build?

 

I'm guess 1.5-2m but that's a wild stab.

 

Could be over 2m...

Word is it's going to be on the market soon as there's a bigger one on the way.

 Almost seems like a bargain when there was trailer boats at the boat show with replacements more than half a mill.

 Extreme Marine buit the hull for Holdfast from memory.

Im hearing opposite, the owners of a couple of the huge boats have actually sold and downsized a bit

At that price with quotas they must be working max allowable pots 24/7 when the $/kg of Crays is high.

 

Doesn't make much sense otherwise

Do a Google search

There's a cool article on all of the specs for the boat (it's impressive) 600nm range and they can hold 220 baskets or 6.5 ton of crays. Makes it worthwhile!.

 At a quick Google it looks like Poppa G is a multi role vessel with oil and gas ops an option.

 

The owners of these boats must be optimistic in the live export going back to the hay days....

 

I'm not sure that will be the case, in the short term anyway.
