Charter Fleet

Sanford believe that the use of well managed charter vessels as a complement to a New Zealand fleet is a sensible and economically viable way of managing the variable and seasonal nature of some of our fisheries. We continue with our successful arrangements with the charter of three vessels from our long term arrangements with Dong Won Fisheries Company Limited and a new charter operation with Juahm Industries, both from Korea. The charter fleet consist of 4 trawlers targeting mainly squid, barracouta, jack mackeral and other mixes species. The charter vessels range in size from 50 meters to 75 meters long. They typically have a crew of 40 and stay out at sea for 35 days.
