Maersk Lay-ups

Now joined by a sistership, MAERSK BEAUMONT is seen here with MAERSK BENTONVILLE, a slightly older vessel, but also British-flagged, while they await their move to Loch Striven in the near future. It is suggested that as many as twenty-five vessels could end up laid up on the Clyde. MAERSK BENTONVILLE arrived on Friday from Rotterdam, having previously spent several weeks at anchor off Margate.

Also awaiting a move into Loch Striven is the older US-flagged ship SEALAND PERFORMANCE. Now twenty-five years old, her days of trading are likely to be over with so many ships of similar size, but which are more modern, also being laid up.
