The Kirkella landed in Hull in April after its trip to the Barents Sea, and the Collins team visited the port with a videographer to film the magnificent vessel, capturing an insight as to what life is like on the factory trawler – showcasing everything from the workstations and the engine room to the crew’s quarters and leisure facilities.

The interviews with the crew provide details of their trips to sea, with one of the things they mention being the potential dangers they face. In this virtual tour, cast your eye over the technology used to spot weather conditions that may affect them, and the high-tech control deck used to operate the vessel.

The fishermen are prepared to tackle any problems; if something breaks in the factory, they are equipped with tools, nuts and bolts for the engineers on board to fix the machinery. In case of any injuries, there is a medical room, and staff working on the vessel who are trained in first-aid and able to carry out medical procedures when necessary.

The crew enjoy the meals that are cooked for them on board and speak highly of the chefs; a nutritional meal is essential after a long day of fishing. They also clean the vessel thoroughly to achieve the highest standard of cleanliness after using the equipment.

The team at Collins were astounded by the modern features on the vessel, and were pleased to know the staff on board enjoy their time at sea and get along well. Share our admiration and check out the video below!

Step into the captain’s shoes, what can you see on the horizon?
