For those like myself who follow the UK shortsea market thought maybe this could be a good chat to start in addition to others for sharing renamings, sales and owner developments within the UK Coastal scene.

Comments and info welcome!

Ferus Smit has received an order for 4 mini bulkers from the Irish / Rotterdam based Arklow Shipping. The first two are planned for delivery in the second half of the 2018 with the other two following in May and November 2019

Spec's are for 16,500dwt Eco bulk carriers at 149.5 meters loa and a beam of 19.4 meters.

As new tonnage for Arklow hits the water currently such as the Arklow Cape and Arklow Valley in the 5000dwt sector, older tonnage is rumured to be preparing to look for buyers. Already the Arklow Rose (blt 2002) has been sold on to Welsh owner Charles M Willie and renamed Celtic Venture.

Further to the above it has been reported the Arklow Wave (blt 2003) has been purchased by Nova Marine Carriers SA and renamed NACC Toronto this November. No doubt with the recent Carisbrooke Shipping tie up Nova Marine Carriers are sourcing similar tonnage. The Arklow Wave is a gearless sister to Carisbrooke's 13,400dwt vessels such as Amy C, Heleen C etc.

Arklow Wave's sister, Arklow Willow (blt 2004) was previously sold this year to the Canadian company McKeil Marine for operating within the Great Lakes being named Florence Spirit.

Mv Odertal (Blt 2007, Imo 9404235) has been bought by Scotline and named Scot Leader. Delivery was in Hull and she proceeded to dry dock, now sporting the Scotline grey hull / green hatch.

Thank you David for noticing my typo! Tany is certainly not a river in the West Country I'm aware of that fits with Exe's naming scheme.

Or maybe copied from here:

Hearing Arklow Rally (imo 9250414) will become Celtic Freedom, another Arklow / C M Willie sale as new tonnage joins the Arklow fleet. Any news?
