A ship which has lived up to her name was finally seen on her third visit to the Clyde as she worked cargo at Greenock Ocean Terminal. The Dutch-flagged ELUSIVE, seen berthed together with WEC VAN GOGH, is sailing on charter to OOCL for the SIX service between Southampton, Dublin, Belfast and Greenock. She is operated by JR Shipping and was built in 1995 by JJ Sietas. She was originally named ARCTIC OCEAN but later became NORASIA ARABIA for a period. In 2007 she was given her present name. She is 133 metres long, with a deadweight of 8,001 tonnes, and can carry 660 TEU containers.
