The 194-foot Araho was launched July 31 at the Eastern Shipbuilding Group in Panama City, Fla., for the O’Hara Corp., of Rockland, Maine. Delivery, however, won’t be until the spring of 2016, when she will go through the Panama Canal and to the Bering Sea.
The Det Norske Veritas-classed freezer trawler is the first U.S. built factory processor in over 25 years and will be the most technologically advanced catcher-processor in the Bering Sea, says Steve Berthold, vice president of marketing for Eastern Shipbuilding.
