Hi All,

Cheers Garry

Thanks Delfin,

I have watched this site for a while and learn't lots and you have a beautiful ship with amazing capabilities,I believe these 2 vessels are unique in this world, well done with all work in the refit and hope to talk more in the future after Torsk arrives in Australia for a refit and a few Mods.
Cheers.

Hi Ulysses,


You probably know why Delfin and Torsk are unique as I believe there are only two 55' steel Romsdal vessels to that design that are sailing the seas.
The same as your vessel is unique as it is 53' and I don't believe there is any other steel Romsdal vessel that length sailing the seas.
Cheers Mate.

Yes, I was not disagreeing in any way of their uniqueness. I was just wondering what in particular you found to be their most unique traits. I wish you the best of cruising and many great adventures on your new boat. May you serve each other well for many years.

Sorry for any misunderstanding that was not intended, I believe these vessels are unique in their own way and from my perspective they look beautiful with great lines above and below the water line as well as being steel round bilge they are strong and a sea kindly vessel, a little roll maybe but very Gutsy, "Take Anywhere" with confidence a real "little ship" The other side also is that they are not a production line vessel, one does not see this kind of vessel every day, something different and Proven, I haven't seen any built here in Australia. I hope that explains a little with my thoughts.
Thanks for your kind words and I hope you are enjoying cruising with your unique ship as much as I will be. Cheers.

I certainly agree with all you said. I have always appreciated a nice rounded stern in both my boat and other endeavors. I think your use of "proven" sums it up. Once again, the best of luck and enjoyment with her.

Hi, welcome TF and congratulations on the new great vessel.

Do you know what the name "Torsk" means?

It is fish in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea here. As a "Gadus morhua" latin name and skandinavian name is Torsk, i think englis name is maby "Cod fish"

Glad to see she has a new home! I had the privilege of spending many hours in the crow's nest as a kid. Awesome place to spend time during the summers! I remember when they cut a hole in the side and installed the Gardner Diesel! She is a beauty, congratulations

For those that didn't know, that was the 2nd Torsk owned by the Willie family. The first was wood as I recall(many moons ago so memory could be fading) and was purchased by the editor of Norwesting magazine which is long gone. Both were beautiful ships
