Berthed in Rothesay Dock today was the Douglas, Isle of Man-registered ODERSTERN, an 11,452 tonne deadweight tanker. Like her sister WESERSTERN, which visited Clydebank last October, this ship now has an overall length of 127.20 metres since she was lengthened in 2001. Owned by the German Rigel company, her commercial operation is entrusted to a Swedish firm, the unlikely named Sinbad Chartering.
