Charles M Willie - Fleet expansion
« on: November 06, 2023, 11:57:47 AM »
Its was reported in the press in early 2023 that Willie's having secured a 14th vessel for their fleet (Voornedijk now CELTIC ENDEAVOUR) were looking for a 15th vessel with possible delivery in the second half of 2023.

Is anyone aware if a further vessel can be expected?

It may be worth keeping an eye on Sharpness Drydock as both of their latest purchases visited there for maintenance and associated name change work.

Best regards

Tom

Thank you Tom.

CELTIC FREEDOM just sold in Dec, reported issue on first voyage as RIX BALTIC.

Experienced an explosion in the cargo hold in a position approximately 40 nautical miles west southwest of St. Annes Head (ex Dublin) on 23 December 2023. She consequently proceeded to Avonmouth port, destination was NLD.

Her sale is no doubt making way for some younger tonnage.

CELTIC FORTUNE is en route from Waterford to Swansea for dry-docking in tow of EN AVANT 10.
Certificates and class seem currently valid, so I assume she has had some sort of problem.  Any ideas?

She requires some attention to her rudder. Will dry dock for a few days prior proceeding to Warrenpoint, 12.01.24
