What is Sig Hansen’s net worth?
According to celebritynetworth.com, Sig has an impressive net worth of around $4 million. Captain Hansen is best known for appearing on the reality TV show Deadliest Catch and has been a leading cast member since the series debut.
His boat, F/V Northwestern, is one of the most productive in the entire show, and Captain Hansen holds the honor of never losing a single sailor to the rough seas. Something he is incredibly proud of.

Sig Hansen’s fishing career
Sig comes from a long line of Norwegian fishermen. He first started working on his father’s fishing boat at the age of 14 and became a full-time fisherman after graduating from high school. During this period, Sig Hansen became familiar with Alaskan waters and the Bering Sea.
Sig then worked his way up the ranks aboard the Northwestern and became a relief skipper. By just 24, he was the full-time captain of the vessel. Under his command, the vessel has enjoyed an excellent record, both in terms of safety and gross production.
In 2005 and 2006, the Northwestern earned the highest amount of money of all the vessels featured on Deadliest Catch. It appears that Sig has no plan of leaving his boat any time soon.
