Gaski commercial fishing boats are found fishing worldwide. Known for stability, space efficiency, tremendous storage and deck area and speed (dependent upon engine, gear and weight onboard). Gaski is also available in models customized to meet the needs of tour and charter boat operators, as a trawler yacht and sport fishing persons. Available in sizes from 26' to 40' and in widths of 8' 6" to 14 +.
In studies performed in the late 1980's gaski, at 32' x 11' was shown to have payload and work deck capabilities of a traditional 42' x 14' fishing boat. Arriving at fishing grounds quicker and carrying up to 14,000 pounds of catch has made the gaski very popular in europe and in north america.
Designed by regin grimsson of iceland, the gaski has been fishing profitably since the mid 1970's. North american models built in canada have remained very similiar to the original version. A newer and larger model is available in iceland.
