Spending last night at anchor in Irvine Bay, the BP tanker BRITISH CYGNET arrived at Finnart this morning. The 113,782 tonne deadweight ship was completed by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea, in November 2005. She is 251.5 metres in length. Like most of the BP Shipping fleet of fifty ships, she is registered at Douglas on the Isle of Man. Manned by an Indian crew, BRITISH CYGNET has a number of sisterships making up the 'Bird' class, including BRITISH ROBIN.
