Inbound for Finnart with a cargo of crude oil from Escravos in Nigeria, the Indian flagged tanker JAG LAYAK had been lying off Brodick for a few days prior to moving upfirth. She was built in 1996 by Samsung Heavy Industries, and delivered to Liberian owners as SEAPRINCESS. In 2006 she was taken over by Great Eastern Shipping, India's largest private sector shipping company, and renamed. JAG LAYAK is 147,834 tonnes deadweight, and has an overall length of 274.12 metres. She is driven by a 6-cylinder Burmeister & Wain engine built under license by her builders, which produces 20,940 bhp at 88 rpm.
