Making what was, I believe (but am open to correction!), her first visit to Greenock on Saturday afternoon was one of DFDS Lys Line's smaller sideport loading ships, LYSTIND. She was built in 1990 by the Kraljevia Shipyard in Croatia, and is a sistership of LYS-SKOG (now renamed SKOG). LYSTIND is 101.8 metres in length, having been lengthened in 2000, and she now has a deadweight of 3,700 tonnes. Seen arriving from Skogn with a cargo of paper, she sailed late on Saturday night for Belfast.
