The vessel, which was built by Royal Bodewes in North Holland, had been in the works for some months and was finally ready to sail. She will have a DWT of 4850 mt, making her the second-largest vessel in the Scotline fleet. She stays under 90 meters, but her optimized design allows her to transport 7,000 cubic meters of sawn Swedish timber.
Although she is a sister ship to the MV Scot Carrier, which was launched last year, she has undergone over 400 design changes since then, the most noticeable of which is the fully enᴄʟᴏsᴇd bridge wings. This should make her even more efficient than the Scot Carrier, while also making her crew’s job easier and more enjoyable.
Scot Explorer is the newest addition to Scotline’s fleet of nine owned ships and five ships on long-term time charter. Scotland is always looking for ways to improve our fleet so that we can provide the best possible service to our customers. The Scot Explorer will have a hold depth of 9 meters, as well as being containerized and ice-class 1B, which is critical for our Baltic customers. The vessel’s design has undergone over 400 changes since the Scot Carrier was launched in August 2018, the most noticeable of which are the fully-and bridge wings. This should make her even more efficient than the Scot Carrier, while also making her crew’s job easier and more enjoyable.
Scotline has a modern fleet of coasters that service Northern Europe on regular routes between S, I, D, G, N, the Baltic States, the Ns, F, and the Uɴɪᴛᴇᴅ Kɪɴɢᴅᴏᴍ. Our cargoes range from forest products and bulk cargoes to project cargoes and more. With wholly-owned terminals in Rochester and Inverness and an exclusively managed fleet of contemporary ships, we can provide an all-in-one shipping, stockholding, and distribution service that is suited to our customers’ needs. Scotline’s global network of relationships also helps us find market cargo for our ships.
