OCI celebrates arrival of new factory freezer trawler

Marie Sullivan has a very important job to do on Monday, June 8. The 94-year-old will smash a champagne bottle against the steel hull of the MV Calvert to officially christen the new addition to Ocean Choice International’s (OCI) fishing fleet. The ceremony at the waterfront in St. John’s will be a celebration for the Sullivan family and the company owned by her sons, Blaine and Martin. The name of the new ship pays homage to the small fishing community on the Southern Shore where the Sullivan family got their start in the fishing business. The new vessel sailed into St. John’s harbour on Thursday, completing her first ocean voyage, a 4,200-nautical-mile journey from her birthing place in the Middle East. Video, >click to read< 10:42
