Differing a little from the usual livery of the Arklow fleet, ARKLOW ROSE has the top of her wheelhouse painted green rather than the more common white. She was seen arrving this morning, passing McInroy's Point as she made her way upriver to Renfrew where she will load a cargo of scrap metal. ARKLOW ROSE - built in 2002 by Barkmeijer at the Stroobos yard - was arriving from Holyhead. Like other vessels of the 'R' class, she has a deadweight of 4,485 tonnes and an overall length of 90 metres.
