The second ship to call at Sandbank since ELVITA 1 departed was SCOT PIONEER, seen here alongside the pier loading round timber today. Like many ships completed by Dutch shipyards, her hull was built elsewhere, in her case at the Shipyard Leda in Croatia. She was completed in 2006 by the Peters Shipyard at Kampen as HARNS for a Dutch owner. In February 2008, she was renamed SCOT PIONEER and became a member of the Scotline fleet. With an overall length of 89.99 metres, her deadweight is 3,614 tonnes.
