Master Marine Building 100-Foot Fiberglass Trawler For Alaska Fisheries

The Escatawpa, Mississippi, shipyard of Master Marine, Inc. has begun construction of one of the nation's largest fiberglass trawlers for operation in the Alaska fisheries.

Christened the One Ocean II, the 100-foot vessel is being built for U.S. Marine Corporation, Kodiak, Alaska. She is the second large fiberglass trawler built by Master Marine for U.S. Marine Corp. The first, named the One Ocean I, was an 85-foot vessel delivered in 1988.

The 100-foot One Ocean II has a beam of 27 feet and draft of 10 feet.

Her propulsion power is provided by a 1,280-hp Caterpillar 3512TA diesel engine fitted to a 79-inch propeller via Aquamet shafting and a Reintjes reduction gear with a ratio of 6:1.

Two Caterpillar engines, a model 3306 and 3408, fitted to two 65-kw generators and hydraulic pumps supply auxiliary power. The 3408 engine, with 443 horsepower, turns three hydraulic pumps that provide power for trawl winches, dual net reels, an anchor winch and four net- nethandling winches.

The Caterpillar 3306 auxiliary engine, rated at 201 horsepower, drives two hydraulic water pumps and compressors in a Refrigerated Seawater (RSW) system and also provides hydraulic power for a deck crane.

Designed by Master Marine's Henry Masters, the One Ocean II features a 437-foot-square deckhouse forward. She has a fish hold capacity of 5,800 cubic feet and fuel capacity of 22,000 gallons.

Two more fiberglass fishing trawlers are on Master Marine's design boards, measuring 110 and 120 feet.

Master Marine expects to deliver the One Ocean II later this year.

Master Marine has constructed a number of fishing vessels, both of steel and fiberglass, for operators around the country.
