Cape Bon stands by in the Basin

The handysize tanker Cape Bon is anchored in Bedfrod Basin awaiting its turn at Imperial Oil. It seems that it will have to wait until another tanker unloads, and it is not due until tomortrow.

Built in 2003 as Cape Bond by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in Ulsan, South Korea, the ship took its present name in 2006 with a quick stroke of the paint brush.Owned by Columbia Ship Management of Hamburg, it operates in the United Product Tankers pool of 46 tankers, 30 of which are nearly identical handysizes, with epoxy coated tanks. UPT is also based in Hamburg, with offices in Stamford, CT and Limassol, Cyprus.
At 25,108 gross tons, 40,108 (maximum) deadweight,it is a typical tanker of the handysize type.
