 Shipbuilder Ferus Smit said it has launched M.V. Arklow Castle at its Westerbroek yard in the Netherlands.

 
Arklow Castle (Nb. 426) is the third cargo vessel in a series of 10 that will be delivered to Irish owner Arklow Shipping.
 
With a maximized hold volume of 220,000 cft and a carrying capacity over 5,000 deadweight tons, it still falls under the 3,000 gross tons limit. Arklow Castle has one single hold and an 1A iceclass notation. It is propelled by a 1,740 kW MaK engine with a single ducted propeller.
