On Thursday the 6th of April at 10.00 hrs. our Nb. 454 ‘Arklow Gem’ was successfully launched at the Westerbroek shipyard of Ferus Smit.
M.V. Arklow Gem is the first in a series of 5 that will be delivered to our client from the city of Arklow, Ireland.
With a maximized hold volume of 220.000 cft and a carrying capacity over 5000 deadweight tons, it still falls under the 3000 gross tons limit. Arklow Gem has one single hold and is propelled by a 1600 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.
