One of the four German-built sisters of HARTLAND POINT and ANVIL POINT arrived on the Clyde today, and was seen entering Loch Long where she headed up to Glen Mallen. HURST POINT, delivered in August 2002 from the Flensburger Shipyard, was here to load military cargo for Becancour in Canada, and her last port was Marchwood. Like her sisters, HURST POINT is owned by Foreland Shipping, and managed by Andrew Weir Shipping Ltd. This class of ship is adapted from a standard ro-ro freighter design.
