Atlantic Tramp - bunker call
The bulker Atlantic Tramp made a call for bunkers today, and was on her way again after a few hours. The ship certainly appears to be deeply laden for a winter Atlantic crossing, but with her low profile (her deck house is a least one deck lower than many ships her size) and full width bridge, were obviously intended for this kind of work.
Built in 2010 by Daoda Heavy Industries in Qidong. China, the ship operates for Korkyra Shipping of Korcula, Croatia. It measures 22,064 gross tons and 33,200 deadweight tonnes and is registered in the Marshall Islands.
Its last port of call was Saint John.
