122-Foot Trawler/Catcher Built By MARCO For Swasand-Mannes
The Starward, the second 122-foot combination boat built by MARCO Seattle for owners Henry and Cory Swasand and Borge Mannes, was christened recently. Dian Swasand, wife of skipper/owner Cory Swasand, performed the champagne honors in ceremonies on the Seattle (Wash.) Ship Canal.
The Starward carries a complete array of fishing equipment and machinery for operation as a trawler/catcher, and as a herring and salmon packer in the Bering Sea and North Pacific fisheries.
Mr. Swasand, veteran captain of the MARCO-built crabber Aleutian Spray, will skipper the new vessel in northern Pacific waters. The Starward will deliver her crab catches to Akutan, Alaska, and will pack salmon and herring later in the year.
The vessel features a raised pilothouse, above the skipper's quarters on the bridge deck, which provides a 360-degree field of vision. The trawl console is installed in the pilothouse, facing the stern, allowing full observation and control of the fishing machinery on the deck below.
Pilothouse electronics include two Furuno radars, two Simrad and one North Star Loran C, a Polaris ADF, Simrad recording depth sounder, Raytheon depth indicator, Raytheon weather facsimile receiver, Sperry gyrocompass with autopilot, plus a full complement of Northern SSB, Triton VHF, and SBE SSB/CB radios.
Hydraulic deck fishing machinery includes a MARCO "KingHauler" for hauling pots, a MARCO "KingCoiler" for line handling, a Hansen double-acting pot dumping rack, a Cook bait chopper, an 11-ton Rowe crane, and two MARCO boom winches. Machinery for trawling operations includes two Rowe trawl winches using Hagglund motors and a MARCO trawl reel. The boat also has 9,500 cubic feet of hold space and two 30- ton seawater chillers for salmon and herring packing.
The Starward is powered by a Caterpillar D399 turbocharged and aftercooled diesel rated at 1,125 bhp. It drives a 90-inch, four-blade Coolidge stainless-steel propeller through a Caterpillar 7271 hydraulic reduction and reversing gear. Steering is accomplished by a Wagner T19 hydraulic system with two jog stations.
Auxiliary power is provided by three Caterpillar diesels, including a turbocharged Model 3304T coupled to a 90-kw generator and two turbocharged 3408TA engines coupled to two 250-kw generators and two MARCO DP37 hydraulic pump drives.
The Swasands are also part owners of four other MARCO boats — the 94-foot Aleutian Spray, the 108-foot Starfish, the 108-foot Nordic Star, and the 122-foot Starlite, all engaged in crabbing.
