Fishing boat

Northern Leader


Alaskan Leader Fisheries


J.M. Martinac Shipbuilding




One of the largest and most innovative ships built in the U.S.

The 184-foot factory longline vessel combines a low-environmental-impact method of fishing with onboard processing capabilities that allows for maximum utilization of vessel catch.


The Northern Leader’s diesel-electric propulsion system is much more energy efficient than traditional combustion engines. Techsol Marine’s power management system (PMS) and variable-frequency drives (VFDs) always provide the right level of power, significantly reducing fuel consumption and environmentally harmful emissions.
