Sailing from Finnart and passing MAERSK BELFAST at the entrance to Loch Long, the Maltese-flagged tanker MALIBU was seen as she got underway for Grangemouth with, presumably, a cargo of reformate. MALIBU was built in 2009 by the Samho Shipyard in Korea, and now sails for Greek owners. She is one of a large class of tankers that includes SONGA OPAL, and which are 144 metres in length. MALIBU has a deadweight of 17,527 tonnes.
