F/V Northwestern of the Deadliest Catch

Deadliest Catch – The F/V Northwestern at Pacific Shipyards in Ballard

:   :   :

The F/V Northwestern is owned and operated and by the Hansen family of Seattle, WA.

The Northwestern has gained fame by being a featured vessel and crew on the hit TV show,

Deadliest Catch‘ on Discovery Channel.

The crab boat is run by the Hansen brothers, Sig (Captain), Edger (Deck Boss) and Norman (Engineer).

Built in 1977 at Marco Shipyards in Seattle for the purpose crab fishing in the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska,

the Northwestern has lovely white paint and blue lettering on her bow and stern.

The boat usually carries around 200 crab pots and is 118 feet long.

The boat originally was run by Hansen’s dad, Sverre,

and the three boys worked as deckhands for him.

Sig became skipper of the Northwestern in 1990.

The Northwestern has a long and good safety record,

never having suffered the loss of a crewman during the fishing season

as it fishes for Red and Blue King, Tanner and Opilio crab.

During the off season,

the vessel berths in Ballard,

a neighborhood in Seattle where Fishermens Terminal is located.
