September 28th 2019

Built in Poland and fitted out at the Larses Yard in Norway, the 75.4m long New Zephyr has already completed her fishing trials and will be heading to the fishing grounds to catch mackerel at the end of next week.

DH Marine got together with Zephyr's owners over 3 years ago to start on the design process for the new boat, which incorporates no less that 6 Caterpillar auxiliary engines, specified and installed by DH Marine.

The New Zephyr is another leap forward in terms of performance, efficiency and finish says the skipper Allister Irvine.
