Marco Shipyard of Seattle recently christened the 140-foot freezer longliner Emerald Queen in ceremonies for Emerald Overseas Company, also of Seattle.
The fourth North Pacific freezer longliner to come out of the Marco Shipyard in the past two years, the Emerald Queen was also the yard's second conversion of a former offshore supply vessel for the longline fishery.
The conversion included an 18- foot extension of the deckhouse aft to provide additional accommodations; addition of a full shelter deck and enclosed baiting area; widening of the wheelhouse on the starboard side for fishing operations; and installation of the many systems necessary for fishing and processing, including a complete Marco-designed hydraulics system, processing and freezing equipment and fishing machinery.
The Emerald Queen's main engines are two Detroit Diesel 12V- 149s, providing 1,200 bhp. Auxiliary power is provided by two Cummins 855 marine diesels coupled with 350-kw generators and a Detroit Diesel 671 with a 125-kw generator.
Built in 1982 as the supply vessel Cheyenne Arrow, the Emerald Queen retains her original dimensions, with an overall length of 140 feet, beam of 34 feet, and depth of 12 feet. She has a refrigerated fish capacity of 493,830 pounds.
Fishing machinery aboard the Emerald Queen includes a longline hauler backed up by a MarcoMatic slack taker and a Marco gangion unwinder. In addition, a Marco CircleMatic baiting machine will be installed later in the season at Marco Dutch Harbor; all of the necessary plumbing and foundations are already in place.
The Emerald Queen's process area is equipped with a Ryan 228 heading machine and gutting, cleaning, and packing tables by Flohr Metal Fabricators. The refrigeration system by Sabroe includes three eight-station horizontal plate freezers and three Sabroe compressors.
