Finesse new to Nirint

Nirint Shipping's regular service from Cuba brought in a ship that has not been here before. Finesse anchored first for Asian gypsy moth inspection, then moved to pier 31 to unload the usual cargo of bagged nickel concentrate.
Finesse was built in 2008 by Qingshan Shipbuilding in Wuhan, China for the now defunct Beluga Shipping as Beluga Finesse.

Finesse has the blank sided accommodation of the Beluga ships, originally used to display a large graphic of a whale's tail.

Beluga, of Bremen, Germany, was taking the shipping world by storm with is new fleet of multi-purpose ships with heavy lift capacity when it collapsed amid fraud charges. Its fleet was dispersed among many different owners, several of them from Germany. Finesse and some sisters went to Peter Doehle of Hamburg in 2011 and has operated for them ever since.
The ship can carry 665 TEU, including 25 reefers, and has two 150 tonne cranes that can be combined for a 300 tonne lift. Its tonnages are 12,684 grt and 12,782 dwt.
