HISTORY

The Victor Pleven is the first in a serie of three vessels built in Poland for Pleven Fisheries. Her two sister-ships are Joseph Roty II and Capitaine Pleven II.

She is a mixed trawler ; mixed because she is both salter and freezer, versatile as she embarks various types of trawl enabling fishing for pelagic species (groundfish) or semi-pelagic. She was equipped with a 2700HP Pielstick engine.

She produces three to four campaigns a year until the end of 80's, faced with declining quotas and restricting fishing areas.

In 1992, French fishermen lose their rights to fish in the waters of Newfoundland. This indicates the end of five centuries fishing on the Banks. The Victor Pleven is then disarmed and put up for sale.

In 1994, Denis Konnert, founder of the aquarium from Vannes, bought her with the aim of transforming her into a floating aquarium. The Victor Pleven left the port of Saint-Malo in September 1994. She was towed to Saint-Nazaire where she resided for two years pending her transformation and that she found a new home port.

This will be Lorient. There was tied in 1996 at the submarine base KÚroman where in 1997 the Victor Pleven finally becomes a museum dedicated to the Great Fishing. But the site is not appropriate and the number of visitors was well below expectations.

In financial difficulties, Dennis Konnert resells the Victor Pleven in 2002 to Cap l'Orient, a group of municipalities around Lorient .

The base of KÚroman starting to become a centre of sailing competition, Victor Pleven becomes undesirable. She was transferred in March 2006 at the fishing port of Lorient, where her future is uncertain.

In June 2008, Cap l'Orient decides to get rid of the old trawler Victor Pleven. She will be deconstructed in Ghent in Belgium. She is sold for a symbolic euro to the Belgian company Van Heyghen Recycling, a subsidiary of Galloo Recycling, in contention on site deconstruction of the Clemenceau.

Victor Pleven had been taken in tow in 2008, September 27 for its final voyage. The scrapping of Victor Pleven started at the beginning of 2009, after the yard has scrapped twenty Irish trawlers. The first work consisted in the removal of asbestos and housing.
