Anna UK-24, a strong resemblance to the latest generation of twin riggers fishing in the North Sea, but is a new design

The 27.75 metre by 8 metre breadth Anna has hull lines and a round underwater shape that have been developed from scratch, and there’s going to be plenty of interest in the fuel consumption figures once a decent amount of fishing time has been put in. Albert Romkes went to the Hoekman  Shipbuilding yard in Urk for the new twin-rigger’s construction, using a hull fabricated in Poland, and reports are that Anna has performed well in its first trips at the end of the summer. The full set of fishing gear, including warps, Thyborøn trawl doors and trawl gear, has been supplied by the VCU net loft in Urk. >video, photos, click to read< 13:39
