On 22 February Scotline’s latest coaster, Scot Navigator, was launched at GS Yard BV in Groningen, Netherlands.

The newbuild has a modern, efficient design and, with the unavailability of suitable second-hand tonnage, Scotline decided she would be the best possible addition to their expanding fleet.

She has been built to comply with all the latest environmental legislation, including provisions to be ready for the ballast water treatment system.

Scot Navigator measures 88m by 13.75m, with a maximum sailing draft of 4.90m. She is powered by a single Caterpillar diesel engine and will sail under the British flag, like the rest of the Scotline fleet.

Scot Navigator, to be delivered in May 2017, is the most recent acquisition to Scotline’s fleet of ten owned vessels.
