The 5,200 dwt Arklow Clan is the fourth in a series of ten ships that will be delivered to Ireland-based Arklow Shipping.

With a hold volume of 220,000 cft, the newbuilding features a length of 86.8 meters and a width of 15 meters.

The ship has one single hold and an 1A iceclass notation and is propelled by a 1740 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.
