The past few weeks have seen the successful launches of the Jocay by Astilleros Murueta and the Ljubica by Astilleros Zamakona. Marco designed, built and installed the deck equipment and fishing gear for these vessels, plus the hydraulic systems that operate them.
After the launch ceremonies work will be completed with the vessels afloat at the fitting-out wharf. Sea trials will then take place, after which they will finally be handed over to their owners. Throughout this stage of the work, Marco will work closely with both shipyards to bring to bear the extensive expertise and experience in launches gained over more than 40 years, in which time it has fitted out over 400 tuna vessels all over the world.
The Jocay will be delivered to Ecuadoran shipowner Pesquera Ugavi, where it will be the biggest vessel in the fleet with a length of 91.10 m and a fish tank capacity of 18,883 m3. It takes its name from the original name of the Ecuadoran port now known as Manta, where it will be based. The Ljubica is to be delivered by the end of the year to Pesquera Miriam SA, and will be based in Panama.
Marco continues to reinforce its position as the world's leading provider of fishing and deck equipment solutions thanks to the awarding of new projects from the Zamakona and Murueta yards in Spain and from Ching Fu in Taiwan.
