    "open Atlantic"???, I know that this is often cited as a reason why ships have got bigger and bigger. SO just out of interest I was wondering what the size was of typical Irish fishing vessels and so check the current register to see and found:

    Length No. of Vessels
    <20m 1834
    20-29m 132
    30-39m 19
    40-49m 9
    50-59m 9
    60-69m 5
    70+ 1

    The largest vessels is the Western Endeavour out of Killybegs, 71m at 1988tonne.
    So looking at a CPV, the 54m of the Flyvefisken class would not be too far wrong (although I wuld prefer a 60-65m vessel to have more capability).

    Fishing Vessel are out there to do one thing, fish!.

    Our ships are out there to carry out numerous different tasks incl boarding ops. The bigger and more stable the PV, the higher the sea states they can carry out those tasks in.

    The CPVs role is out to approx 40 miles offshore on some occasions. Other than that its inside Irish Territorial Waters, 12nm.

    The role that the NS & State want the CPV replacements to operation in needs to be defined. This will dictate what size and type of vessel replaces them.
