Another 'Rhein' class coaster, built at Komarno in Slovakia for Erwin Strahlmann, arrived on Thursday in ballast from Garston to load a cargo of scrap metal. LUHNAU was completed for the German coaster owner in February 2007, and is 87.9 metres long. An interesting picture showing the 3,680 tonne deadweight ship, presumably heading down the River Danube, before final completion, can be seen here.
