On Friday the 7th of April, Ferus Smit’s Nb. 427 was successfully launched at the Westerbroek yard of Ferus Smit.
M.V. Arklow Clan is the fourth vessel in a series of 10 that will be delivered to Ferus Smit’s client Arklow Shipping based in the city of Arklow, Ireland.
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.
