Atlantic Marine To Build Caterpillar-Powered Longliner Processor

Atlantic Marine, Inc. of Jacksonville, Fla., recently signed a contract with Chalice Trawlers Corporation of Edmonds, Wash., to build the Aleutian Chalice, a 123-foot by 32- foot longliner processor. The vessel was designed by Rodney E. Lay & Associates of Jacksonville.

The longliner will be powered by two Caterpillar 3408 main engines with Twin Disc MG516 reduction gears and two 185-kw 3306 Caterpillar generators supplied by N.C. Marine of Seattle. Sabroe Refrigeration will furnish the refrigeration equipment, and the longline fishing equipment will be supplied by Marco.

The electronic package will be furnished by Harris Electronics, also of Seattle. Marine Laboratories of Ervine, Calif., will supply the two 500-gpd water makers.

The Aleutian Chalice will be delivered in late summer of 1989 and will be joined by her sister ship Silver Chalice for fishing in the Bering Sea. The Silver Chalice was also built by Atlantic Marine.

Located at the intersection of the St. Johns River and Intracoastal Waterways in Jacksonville, Fla., Atlantic Marine, Inc. constructs steelhulled vessels, including fishing vessels, research vessels, ferry boats, tugs, barges and specialized vessels for offshore and river use.
