Strahlmann's coaster JOKER, which arrived yesterday evening, moved upriver from her anchorage this morning to the BVT Surface Fleet shipyard at Govan, as the former Fairfield yard is now known. JOKER was built as ELISIA at the Hugo Peters shipyard at Wewelsfleth in 1984, and joined the Strahlmann fleet in 2002. She is 82.29 metres long, with a deadweight of 2,311 tonnes.
