Maran Sagitta - a quick turnaround
The ship anchored off Halifax for a time before heading into port late Thursday evening, tying up about midnight. It had tugs alongside preparing to sail at 6 pm tonight.
It was also on a rather strange route for a crude tanker in Halifax. Its last port was Houston, TX and it sailed for Fawley, UK. (Other sources claim its last ports were Puerto La Cruz and Sint Eustatius - who can you believe these days?)
Built in 1999 by Hyundai in Ulsan, South Korea and the ship measures 56,957 gross tons, 105,333 deadweight and is owned and registered in Greece.
