Centrally located near the top of Denmark, the Jobi Yard has a skilled crew capable of carrying out work in wood, fiberglass, aluminum or steel. Whether for repair and maintenance or new construction, Jobi Yard has a reputation of quality and Danish reliability.

When fishing skipper Ejner Klitlund and his son Rasmus Klitlund decided on a new fishing boat, it was natural that they approach Jobi Yard. With a design by Danish naval architect Vestværftet A/S of Hvidesand, they had the hull built in Poland. The completed 23.75 by 7.4-meter hull will be delivered to Denmark in August of this year and outfitted at the Jobi Yard. With a molded depth of just over six meters, there is ample space for two decks within the hull.

Designed as a trawler, the new vessel will be outfitted to operate with a crew of three. Supplied by Denmark’s Granly Diesel, a single Cummins QSK19-M main engine, generating 750 HP at 1800 RPM, will provide towing power. The main engine will turn a 2200 m/m diameter controllable pitch propeller through Mekanord 430-2HS marine gear with servo for the CP propeller and a deep 9.14:1 reduction. The CP propeller will be a type Korsør CP21-R. The sophisticated propulsion system will generate a bollard pull in excess of 14 tons and a free running speed of ten knots.

Auxiliary power for the trawl winch hydraulic, deck crane and other requirements as well as for electrical power will be provided by a pair of Cummins 6BT5.9 DM/UCM274 E1-powered 80 Kwe at 50 Hz generator sets.

To be named the Emilie, the new boat is scheduled for delivery to her owners in the first quarter of 2018.
