The C. 715 is a new trawler that has just been completed by CNP Freire shipyard in partnership with AISTER for the Greenland Shipowner Qajaq Trawl. The vessel. 80.80 m length and 17 m beam, put Galician marine engineering at the forefront of the sector.

With a marine-grade steel hull and an aluminum superstructure, manufactured by highly qualified AISTER staff, the ship has two main advantages: its innovative propulsion system that allows increasing the power of navigation in areas where there is a lot of ice or adverse weather conditions and this vessel has an automatic processing plant which allows the selection, cooking and freezing process with only 5 workers.
