With a maximized hold volume of 220.000 cft and a carrying capacity of over 5000 deadweight tons, the open hatch single decker still falls under the 3000 gross tons limit.

Arklow Clan has one single hold and an 1A Ice-class notation. It is propelled by a 1740 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.

The vessel, which will fly the flag of the Netherlands, was ordered by Arklow Shipping in August 2014.
