Passing the Amazon distribution centre at Gourock this morning, Lys Lines' LYSBLINK heads for Greenock with a cargo of paper. Like her sister LYSVIK which was shown here previously, LYSBLINK was built at the ABG shipyard at Surat in India, being completed in July 2000. She was also given a new 27.1 metre mid-section in a lengthening process at Gydnia's Nauta Ship Repair Yard in 2004, resulting in an overall length of 129.0 metres and a deadweight of 7,500 tonnes. Unlike LYSVIK, this ship is still in the Lys Line livery.
