The New Maxus Fast Catamaran is almost complete. Gerry and his team have worked around the clock to complete this boat in time for the Aberdeen Expo on 12th and 13th May 2023.
The future diversity of inshore fishing was on display recently with the arrival of the new multi-purpose 12 meter catamaran Shazleah to her home port of Killybegs.
Built by G Smyth Boats in Kilkeel for Donegal fishermen Michael and Marcus Munnelly, Shazleah has been designed to fish using Whitefish & Pelagic Trawls, Jigging Machines and Haulers.
The versatility of the Shazleah was a design collaboration between the owners and designer Gerry Smyth resulting in a vessel that can quickly change roles to
target fish by availability or season and take advantage of weather conditions to fish further offshore.
Kirwan Technical Services supplied the two Iveco FPT Nef 6.7 mna main engines coupled to PRM 1000D4 gearboxes.
The deck equipment package by SeaQuest Systems includes:
- SeaQuest 3tonne Trawl Winches
- SeaQuest 1tonne Net
- Sounding Winch
- SeaQuest 2tonne Net Drums
- Complete Hydraulic Package incuding local & deck control, Wheelhouse panels and a LS Hydraulic System
The installation was carried out in Kilkeel by SeaQuest Systems engineers which included fitting out the complete pipework in stainless steel.
Barry Electronics supplied and installed a complete electronics package to Shazleah which also included a 80kHz 6” Sonar to target pelagics.

This vessel is the latest addition to Newlyn Harbour ring netters. The Inter Nos was built for William Treneer, Elizabeth Lambourn and Sam Lambourn.
William , who will also Skipper the vessel, left Kilkeel Harbour on 19th December with his crew and made the journey to Newlyn in 30 hours.
On arrival into Newlyn harbour William's family joined Elizabeth and Sam Lambourn and family with streamers, banners, champagne and plenty of cheer to welcome the crew and the Inter Nos home.
Since early January they have been fishing sardines.
