Arriving at the north end of the Largs Channel on Saturday afternoon, the bulk carrier GIANNI D is seen with the new tug SVITZER MILFORD alongside her starboard quarter. GIANNI D was built in 1998 as ST. NICHOLAS by the Okean Shipyard at Nikolaev in the Ukraine. She was renamed in 2002, and is now managed by Goldenport Holdings. Flying the Maltese flag, this 69,100 tonne deadweight ship is 224.9 metres in length, and was carrying a cargo of coal from the Russian port of Ust-Luga.
