The Danish-owned coaster JYTTE BRES lies at the 'Bravo' anchorage on a damp morning, waiting to head up the Clyde on a rising tide to Renfrew, where she would load a cargo of scrap metal for export to Seville. She was built in 1999 by Damen, and completed at the Dutch company's yard at Hoogezand, her hull having been built in Romania. JYTTE BRES, operated by Bres Line, is 89 metres in length and has a deadweight of 4,748 tonnes.
