Heading towards Finnart early this morning with a cargo of Nigerian crude oil, the Liberian-registered Suezmax tanker GLADIATOR was seen shortly after passing Cloch Point. This ship, managed by Dynacom Tankers and owned by Tourel Ltd, was delivered by the Universal Shipbuilding Corporation from their Tsu shipyard in Japan in March 2008. GLADIATOR is 274.2 metres in length, and has a deadweight of 149,944 tonnes.
