Scotline announced earlier today the signing of a contract with Royal Bodewes Group BV in Holland to build one 4785 DWAT Bodewes Trader, with the option of a second vessel.
The vessel will adopt the name Scot Carrier and will have a length of 89.98 meters, a beam of 15.20 meter and a maximum sailing draft of 5.68 meters. She will be powered by a MAK engine, will be sailing under the British Flag and classed under Lloyd's Register.
The hull is expected to be launched in September 2018 and Scotline expects the finished vessel to be delivered in November 2018. She will be fully container fitted, with Swedish ice class 1B and will be built to comply with all the latest legislation including provisions to be ready for the Ballast Water Treatment regulations.
The Scot Carrier will be the most recent acquisition to Scotline’s fleet of 8 owned vessels.
“In these challenging times Scotline are always looking for opportunities to enhance our fleet in order to offer our customers a reliable service. The Scot Navigator was delivered last year as the start of our efforts to renew some of our older tonnage. The Scot Carrier is being built by the same yard as – and will be similar to – the Scot Leader.”
