Built in 1991 as WANNSEE, this German coaster was constructed by the Estaleiros Navais de Viano do Castelo shipyard in northern Portugal. Since then, she has had several names, most recently having been named MF MALTA (2000) and NORDSTRAND (2001). She took her current name, GRAF UKO, in 2005, and is managed by Krey Schiffahrt GmbH. Her overall length is 87.5 metres, and her deadweight is 2,900 tonnes. She arrived last night and anchored at the Tail o' the Bank before heading upriver this afternoon, to load scrap metal at Renfrew.
