Pushing her way downriver against the westerly swell, the Maltese-registered coaster UNIVOYAGER had sailed from the Lobnitz Basin at Renfrew, assisted by Clyde Marine's BITER, seen on the right kicking up a lot of spray, about an hour before this picture was taken as the pair passed Newark Castle. UNIVOYAGER is managed by Klip Marine Shipmanagement, an Estonian company, although commercial management is undertaken by Unimars, a Latvian firm. This coaster was built in Turkey, and completed in 2008 as ÖZCAN ATASOY, but was renamed shortly after being delivered. She is 84.75 metres overall, and has a deadweight of 4,500 tonnes. She was taking her cargo of scrap metal to Seville.
