Down to her marks with a full cargo of scrap metal, Arklow Shipping's Dutch-flagged coaster ARKLOW VENTURE was seen passing McInroy's Point outward bound for Seville in southern Spain. She was built by the Pattje Shipyard at Waterhuizen and launched in July 1999 as SIDER VENTURE, and was acquired, together with her sisters, in 2004 and given her 'Arklow' name. She has a deadweight of 4,940 tonnes and an overall length of 89.8 metres.
