A modern longline fishing vessel

The NORTHERN LEADER is the largest and most innovative commercial fishing longliner built in the U.S. in over 20 years.  The vessel employs advanced technology which substantially reduces fuel consumption such as 100% LED lighting and the Diesel Electric Power Management System that controls the vessel propulsion units and all other electrical demands onboard.   NORTHERN LEADER employs Mustad Autoline that allows both maximum utilization of vessel catch and preserves the quality of the Alaskan whitefish.

This 22" longline fishing vessel was commissioned by the curator of Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.  Construction commenced in July and completed in October 2016.  It is one of our three models that are permanently exhibited in a sealed glass chamber at the museum.  If you are a museum curator or a philanthropist who would like to donate a historically significant vessel to a museum, please feel free to contact us.  We love to build models that are enjoyed and learned by million of people for many decades to come and will work hard to achieve your noble wishes.
