Continuing to run stores out to SOLITAIRE off Tomont End, the northern tip of Great Cumbrae, BOA FORTUNE made another visit to Greenock today. Built to the standard Ulstein UT706 design, she has twin screws driven by Bergen Diesels, each producing 3,305 bhp. Her cargo deck aft can carry up to 1,800 tonnes. She is also fitted with six tanks which can carry drilling mud and other such cargoes. A full description of her can be found here.

[EDIT: BOA FORTUNE completed work with SOLITAIRE this evening, and has now sailed for Killybegs.]
