The FT 3300 is designed as a freezer trawler for the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska. During the design process, special attention was paid to the logistics onboard the vessel, allowing for efficient processing and short offloading times, and thus maximizing the operational fishing time. This results in a wide trawl deck, offering space for two nets side-by-side. From the trawl deck, the fish is directly offloaded into the fish receiving bins, which are at the aft end of the processing area. The large processing and packing area offers space for multiple processing lines side-by-side. The pallet elevator can be used to transport the packed product to the freezer hold.


A high offloading capacity allows the in-harbor time to be kept to a minimum. This is achieved by using two side doors, one for the pallet elevator offloading the freezer hold and one for the fish meal hold, and a crane with a hatch to the freezer hold. At the same time, the provisions can be loaded using the forward crane and elevator. The hull shape is optimized to reduce the vessel motions, increasing the comfort level for the crew and minimizing the fishing downtime at sea.
