Arriving this afternoon was another of the Erwin Strahlmann fleet, the 2,829 tonne deadweight coaster RANTUM. 89.29 metres long, she was built in 1989 as WALDTRAUT B. This vessel is a typical product from the Dutch Damen shipyard at Gorinchem, with her hull being built elsewhere, as IHC Holland's yard at Sliedrecht. One of her sister 'Combi Coaster 125' class ships, BÖKLUM, was also on the Clyde recently.
