Vessel Review: French Owner’s New Scallop Trawler to Operate in the Englis Channel

French boatbuilder Plasti-Peche recently delivered a new trawler to father and son fishers Thierry and Martin Ramet based in the port city of Boulogne-sur-Mer on the northern coast of France. Mere du Christ II (“Mother of Christ II”) was designed by local naval architect Coprexma primarily for the bottom trawling of scallops, taking over the role once performed by the owners’ earlier boat, the 1992-built Mere du Christ. The bespoke vessel’s main area of operations encompasses the portion of the English Channel that stretches from Boulogne to the Seine Estuary, where it will trawl for scallops from October to January. For the remainder of each year, the crew will focus on catching squid and sardines. Photos/specifications, more, >>click to read<< 11:05
