History

Van Dijck was constructed in 1974, at Zeebrugge in Belgium and made its presence felt as a capable scallop dredger. The ship is recognised as one of the four largest fishing dredgers across Europe. The fishing vessel is 29 meter large and is steel-hulled with a raised forecastle. The Van Dijck is a proven performer. The steel-hulled vessel uses a very functional design, complete with a raised forecastle and an open working deck. There is room for the crew in the form of an accommodation block. The wheelhouse of Van Dijck stretches behind the stern.

There is an exposed deck that operates along the forefront. Each spot of the main deck has been grounded using sheaths of wood. The Van Dijck is recognizable with its “H” shaped framework. This is visible along the front end of the forecastle. The H-shaped gantry is held together using a port and two derricks. The famous trawler comes with a well-walled pulley house which is located towards anterior end of the living space block/wheelhouse – extending up to the main deck level.

Van Dijck comes packed with shipping equipment – necessary in a fishing trawler. This includes all the standard stuff like poles, bridles, chains, and dredges. Fishing gear is kept on the deck, atop the durable deck protection plates made of steel. Van Dijck uses scuppers. These are fixed to the bulwark. The trawler offers easy movement with clear deck access behind the forefront of the main deck.
