Seen yesterday at Ayr Harbour, but still there today loading coal for Northern Ireland is the smart little coaster WILSON BREST. Owned by Wilson ASA of Norway, she is a 3,704 tonne deadweight ship of 88.0 metres length. Built in 1995 by Slovenska Lodenice AS, at Komarno in Slovakia, she is of their 'Ryn' class, and was originally named NORTHERN LESNES before taking her present one in 2002. She flies the Maltese flag.
