26.000tons is huge. Is that a reasonable size for a whaling ship?

July 8th

The Goverment fraud team investigating the troubles at whaling firm Stavanger Pelagic has decided to release the amount paid by the company for their 2 new whaling factory ships. The company paid nearly 220Million Krone for the 2 ships while the real value is much closer to 160Million Krone. The extra monies paid are not shown as being in the shipyards accounts, or even being entered, and have assumably been siphoned off by an individual for use for un known purposes.
