Piriou deliveres 23m trawler Anthemis

Piriou has delivered 22,75m trawler Anthemis for artisanal fishing to shipowner Cabaret Jérôme. Designed for bottom and midwater trawling in the Channel and the Irish Sea, this new vessel will shortly be christened in her home port in St Brieuc, North Brittany.

This delivery is the result of a collaboration between shipowner Cabaret Jérôme, Piriou, naval architect Pantocarene and shipbroker Atlantic Marine Services.

“Anthemis is the result of the meeting between Mr and Mrs Cabaret and Piriou. We established a trusting ongoing relationship, suppported by shipbroker Atlantique Marine Services and Didier Marchand from Pantocarène. I think we have built the vessel shipowner J. Cabaret was expecting”, sates Vincent Faujour, Piriou President. “At Piriou, we have been building trawlers for over 50 years and artisanal fishing is the origin of our DNA. To abandon this activity would be like cutting our roots.”

Jérôme Cabaret adds: “Outstanding work was delivered by Jean Lijour from the design office, and by Cédric Cordroch and his team driven by Tony. Anthemis is a fine work vessel with high-quality finishes offering a combination of comfort, performance and safety. I am totally satisfied with her as she perfectly answers my request.”
