A sister of STEERSMAN, James Fisher's tanker RUDDERMAN sailed this morning from Finnart with a cargo backloaded from Grangemouth bound for the River Shannon in Ireland. RUDDERMAN was completed early in 1994 by Malaysia Shipyard & Engineering and has a deadweight of 6,418 tonnes. She has an overall length of 101.6 metres, and is driven by a Mirrlees ESL 16 Mk II engine producing 3,550bhp. Like her sisters, RUDDERMAN flies the Liberian flag.
