Calvert. It is Ocean Choice’s largest vessel at 74-metres long and 3800 gross tonnes. The Calvert is a modern vessel designed by Skipsteknisk in Norway and built by Tersan in Turkey. The world-class processing facility was built and installed by local company, C&W Industrial Fabrication.

The vessel gets its name from the small community of Calvert, on Newfoundland’s southern shore, where owners Martin and Blaine Sullivan grew up in a fishing family.

This vessel is a testimony to all the hard work and dedication of Ocean Choice’s 1700 employees and the belief that by working together we can create a strong fishery for the future.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/12″ offset=”vc_col-md-4″][vc_single_image image=”5886″ img_size=”full” alignment=”right”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row equal_height=”yes” content_placement=”top” disable_element=”yes”][vc_column][vc_raw_html el_class=”embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9″]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[/vc_raw_html][vc_single_image image=”6003″ img_size=”full”][vc_btn title=”View the M.V.
