  1. The most obvious and significant modification has been a reduction in the height of the superstructure by one deck.  A new much larger wheelhouse structure has been fabricated at the base in Aluminium Alloy.
  2. Both exhaust uptakes have been reduced considerably in height and a new mast structure has been added. Other measures taken to improve stability include, a large reduction in the weight of fendering around the bow and raised forecastle, fitting larger bilge keels and the conversion of void spaces into internal tanks. The latter has increased the vessels range (free-running at 12 knots) from 3,906 miles to 5,926 miles. Fuel and ballast transfer equipment has also been significantly upgraded.
  3. As part of the same project, a great deal of effort has been expended in reducing noise levels onboard by improving insulation and modernising the ventilation system and air ducting. Noise levels on the bridge have been reduced from 70.1db to 60.2db. New consoles have been installed on the bridge wings for propulsion and winch controls. 
  4. ABS Loadline just expired with ship being scheduled for dry dock. Can Purchase as she lies or complete re-certification if you require such.
