Berthing at Finnart late on Thursday, the German tanker RHEINSTERN loaded a cargo for Rotterdam, and sailed on Saturday afternoon. She was seen as she made her way down the Firth past Dunoon. RHEINSTERN is owned by Rigel Schiffahrts GmbH and was built, by MTW at Wismar, in 1993. One of six similar ships, all bearing the names of German rivers, RHEINSTERN is 161.4 metres in length and has a deadweight of 17,079 tonnes. She flies the flag of the Isle of Man.
