A brand new coaster arrived at Sandbank this morning to load a cargo of round timber. TIM, only delivered to her German owners Interscan Schiffahrt on 22 September, was built at the Marpro Shipyard in Poland, part of the Dutch Bodewes Group. Second of a series of six sisters, TIM is 3,450 tonnes deadweight and 82.5 metres long. She flies the Cypriot flag, and her brokers are HH Danship AS. She arrived on the Clyde yesterday evening from Cork, and anchored off Rothesay overnight to await her berth at the Holy Loch Marina this morning.
