Loading timber for export at Troon today was the Dutch-flagged coaster FLINTERBELT. She is operated by Nordic Chartering, and was built in 2004 in Poland by Marine Projects Ltd at Gdansk, although her completion took place at the Bodewes shipyard at Hoogezend in Holland. FLINTERBELT has a deadweight of 3,481 tonnes, and an overall length of 82.50 metres.
