M.V. Arklow Bank Departs Ferus Smit Shipyard

Ferus Smit shipyard has delivered M.V. Arklow Bank to her new owner Arklow Shipping.

The Arklow Bank, built as Nb. 409, is the first unit in a series of six multi purpose cargo ships. These ships have following dimensions: Loa 119.495 mtr, B 14.99 mtr, Tmax 7.160 mtr, Deadweight abt 8.400 tons, Hold volume 350.000 cft.

The characteristic and innovative ‘bulbless’ bow shape brings this design a number of ‘green’ advantages. Her longer and sharper waterlines create less resistance, irrespective of her loading draft. At the same time this shape creates more deadweight and cargo volume within her absolute dimensions. Above the waterline the more slender form will cut gradually through waves, improving performance in rough conditions.
