“Marsali” built by, Aas Mek. Verksted, to support Cooke Aquaculture Scotland contract.

Shipbuilder Aas Mek. Verksted delivered its new wellboat “Marsali” to the Scottish shipping company Migdale Transport on April 23.

“The baptism was scheduled to be held at the Orkney Islands in mid-May but has been postponed for the time being due to the corona pandemic. After delivery, the newbuild goes to Scotland and embarks on a fixed charter for Cooke Aquaculture’s farming activities in the country,” wrote Aas Mek. Verksted in a press release.


The new building has a length of 62.86 meters and a width of 12 meters. The cargo volume is 1,500 cubic meters.

Migdale Transport, which specialises in the transport of live fish across land and sea, has purchased the “Marsali”, a purpose-built wellboat thanks to a GBP 13.5 million loan from HSBC UK.

The shipping company has previously owned the wellboat “Migdale” (formerly “Rofisk), which is also built by Aas Mek. Verksted.
