Following my usual route South into the city I saw the General Cargo Ship BBC Nile (IMO 9571375, GT 12980, 2011) at Seaforth, there were quite a number of other ships in the basin but the view of the docks was almost totally obscured by vehicles waiting to board an ACL vessel presumably heading for sale in North America.
Further towards the city centre I turned onto the dock road where in one of the Canada Docks two Dutch registered dredgers and a tug were moored, the two dredgers were Johan Van Veen (IMO 9098971, GT 869, 2007) and Jetsed (IMO
8804505, 237, 1988). The tug was Afon Alaw (IMO 9298935, GT 200, 2004) a twin screw 25m shallow draft seagoing vessel operated by Holyhead Towing.
The cruise ship terminal was also occupied by a new cruise ship I had not seen before in the form of Crystal Serenity ( IMO 9243662, GT68870, 2003), she departed Liverpool later in the day for Cobh.
Closer to my destination Norwegian registered Chemical / Oil Products tanker Ekfjord (IMO 9356622, GT12162, 2009) was at moored at Tranmere, this vessel has also since left port and is en-route to Gothenburg.
Six new ships in one day is quite good, I also managed to get a few pictures.
I'm back in Liverpool on Monday so hopefully a few new ships will arrive over the weekend.
