A latest vessel built by Arklow Marine Services, has stern gear supplied by Clements Engineering.

The 14.95m twin-rig trawler, called “Diligent Jo” will shortly start working out of her new home port of Plymouth, having completed successful sea trials near Co Wicklow, Ireland.

Powered by a Volvo Penta D13 main engine, ‘Diligent Jo’ has a comprehensive array of equipment and has been ergonomically designed for its owners for hassle free fishing.  The vessel is equipped with four berths and is the latest launch from the Irish boat builders who have supplied fishing vessels for over 150 years.

Clements Engineering, who have worked with Arklow many times before, discussed the design and expected performance of the fishing boat with the Arklow team at each stage of the design and build. This meant that they could design and manufacture stern gear to match the requirements of the owners.
