Adapted to sustainable fishing
The Damen Beam Trawler design has been updated to meet today’s requirements. The incorporation of new techniques facilitates more selective and environmentally friendly fishing.
Decades Of Experience
Our story begins in 1948. It was then that Piet Maaskant and his sons opened a repair yard to serve the Dutch fishing fleet. Over the years we grew our offering to include the construction of the innovative, high quality, engineered-to-order newbuild vessels that we have become renowned for. Today, we remain at the heart of our fishing community, supported by an extensive, professional local supply chain and skilled employees, many of whom are second, or even third generation.
A safe working area with good visibility
The Damen Beam Trawler’s high bow design provides a safe working area on deck and a good view from the wheelhouse.
Reduced fuel consumption
These efficient fishing vessels have optimised propulsion and a special hull shape which leads to reduced fuel consumption. The stainless steel collars surrounding the propellers deliver improved thrust both ahead and astern, which requires less engine output for a given speed, resulting in a very efficient vessel.
