On Friday, June 6, Ferus Smit will launch Nb. 411 at Westerbroek. Nb. 411, to be christened Arklow Beach, is the third vessel in a series of six that will be delivered to a client from the city of Arklow, Ireland.

The design is a bulk oriented general cargo ship that will be mainly employed in the shipment of wheat, corn and other bulk commodities in European waters.

As hull form it was chosen to adapt the ‘bulbless’ principle, creating a slender bow without bulb, the ship’s builder said. Taking into account the various loading drafts and wave conditions to be encountered in service, the total performance of this bow will be better than a bulb optimized for one single draft and flat water only.

Chief  characteristics:
    Loa = 119.495 mtr
    Lpp = 116.895 mtr
    B = 14.99 mtr
    D = 9.7 mtr
    T max = 7.186 mtr
    DW max = abt 8,660 ton
    Hold volume = 350,000 cft

Arklow Bay is scheduled to be delivered July 2014.
