When Russian Far East fishing company Dobroflot sent its trawler Yuzhno-Morskoy to a Chinese shipyard for what was expected to be a four-month refit, nobody expected the crew to have to spend 19 months there.
Now Yuzhno-Morskoy is back in its home port, following a long battle to get the work completed and the trawler released from the Chinese shipyard.
‘It’s an example of integrity, professionalism, patience and perseverance of the entire crew,’ a spokesman for the company said, commenting that the trawler was steamed to the yard in China in the summer of 2019 for scheduled maintenance.
