Twin oil tankers delivered by Damen Shipyards Bergum to De Opfeart Beheer and James Fisher Everard
The Damen Double Hull Oil Tanker 8000 ‘Kestrel Fisher’ was delivered end 2013 to Dutch managers De Opfeart Beheer. In a two-tanker deal, the Kestrel Fisher’s sister vessel ‘King Fisher’ was delivered in June 2013. Both have been built by Damen Shipyards Bergum. The oil (product) tankers’ names are a reference to James Fisher Everard Ltd, which have taken up their commercial management.
The 7,076 deadweight, 8,363 cubic metre tankers were christened at the DSB-yard in Harlingen where they were outfitted; their hulls were built by Damen Shipyards Galati, Romania. Referring to the vessels’ trade, their lady sponsors, Mrs. Petra Gaensbacher for the ‘King Fisher’ and Mrs. Michelle Hartnup for the ‘Kestrel Fisher’, of the United Kingdom both work in the oil trading industry.
