Bringing a cargo of components for wind turbines, including a number of the massive blades on her hatch tops, CORAL SEA was seen passing Cloch Point this morning as she headed up the Clyde to Glasgow. CORAL SEA was built in Holland in 2000, and when launched bore the name DEO VOLENTE, which she carried until the newer ship now carrying the same name was built. This ship, built by Tille Shipyards, has a deadweight of 2,850 tonnes and an overall length of 90.78 metres. She is now owned by Coral Shipping, a Dutch company.
