Running on charter to the Coastal Container Line, part of the Peel Ports Group which also owns Clydeport, the small German container ship COASTAL DENIZ arrived on Monday morning from Belfast. Her main employment is between Liverpool and Belfast, so her visit to Greenock was somewhat unusual. COASTAL DENIZ is a sistership of COASTAL ISLE, which was seen as she visited Greenock last August, and was originally named SYBILLE. Since then she has been named BALTIC BRIDGE and RHEIN MERCHANT whilst employed on various charters, and she has carried her present name since 2005. Built in 1991 by Kröger Werft at Schacht-Audorf on the Kiel Canal in Germany, COASTAL ISLE has a deadweight of 4,485 tonnes, an overall length of 82.5 metres and she can carry 260 TEU containers.
