The fifth new build, Anders Nees brings their fishing buddies together again.
For the four tanned fishermen who have once again teamed up for a new Anders Nees, a state-of-the-art and combined aircraft shooter and trawler from Vestværftet design, this has been from a good working life that has motivated them to build a new vessel.
With half of the investment by Tonny Nees from Thyborøn and the remaining 50 per cent distributed between Arne Christensen, Jan Poulsen and Rasmus Arnbak, the goal of the new build has not only been about economy and efficiency. Of course, that also matters, but for the experienced fishermen there has also been a high degree of co-determination during the construction phase, and in particular to create a stable foundation for their future working lives.
The sale of Anders Nees back in 2016 was not planned, but the offer to the West Jutland fishermen at that time was so good that they could not say no. Subsequently, they searched high and low for a larger used vessel, but when they did not succeed, continued with slightly different vessel options. But, as you know, it ended up differently. For Christmas 2017, they put their signature on a new build from Vestværftet in Hvide Sande, but with the contract on the ship at Thyborøn Skibs & Motor A/S (3XJ).
Almost three years after the vessel named Anders Nees was added to the quay in Thyborøn, you will now be able view it only in a younger and sharper version but still with four very experienced fishermen on board, either at the helm or on the deck and in the engine room. Four experienced fishermen who have worked at sea for several years. Three have already turned 50, only Rasmus, with his 42 years, is the youngest member of the ownership group at Anders Nees.
As the youngest member, Rasmus also talks about having the cooperation and excellent relationships onboard, where you praise each other well and where it all just works perfectly. Here the decisions are made in agreement, which means a lot for the four fishermen, who each have their own special skills and therefore do what they do best.
Tonny Nees, whose grandfather Anders Nees, whom the ship is named after, further emphasizes that it has also been important for him that everyone feels included in the decisions. In addition to the four-party shipowners, there will be three crew members associated with the ship who will be working on shifts. Jonas Petersen as an adult apprentice and the experienced fisherman Frans Poulsen as well as the somewhat younger Skød Hansen – a student from the Fishery School in Thyborøn.
The new build L426 Anders Nees is 24 meters and has room for a crew of 6 men. The ship will fish for consumer fish and lobster in Skagerak and the North Sea, and according to plan, during the summer season flyshooting and in the winter period fishing with trawls. The ship has room for 900 boxes in the large cargo compartment.
FiskerForum.dk wishes the ship and crew the best of luck in the future.
