Seen sailing this afternoon, the tanker MARIDA MAGNOLIA was on her way to the French port of Petit Couronne, on the River Seine. Delivered less than six months ago by her Korean builders, the Jinse Shipbuilding Co, she is operated by Marida Tankers as part of the Heidmar Group. With a deadweight of 13,273 tonnes, the 127.9 metre long tanker was named SICHEM HAMBURG when launched, but had her name changed after being sold by her original owners, Eitzen Chemical, when she was about a month old.
