I took this photograph as we were heading out of port en-route to Civitavecchia.
Surprisingly she was only one of three Crude Oil Tankers I saw on my two week cruise around the Mediterranean, the other two were both anchored off shore at Barcelona and I only saw these as we were sailing into port on the very last day of my holiday.
She was built in China in 2008 by New Century Shipbuilding, Jingjiang as Yard Number 307331 and is 232m long with a 32m beam and 13.2m draught.
In total she has six tanks (81,320m3 @98%) with a single slop tank (2,027m3).
Powered by a Hyundai MAN B&W 5560 MC-C (11,300 kW) engine the vessel has a service speed of 15 Knots.
DWT = 73,981 & NT 22,444
The vessel is noted as being managed by Searrland Management Services Singapore.
