UK BUILT COLLIER: Collier’s last voyage

On 19 December 2013 the 2,535dwt Shoreham (pictured), which had been under arrest for almost a year in the Spanish port of Santander, made a short voyage to the scrapyard in the same port, and four Russian sailors that were still on board were flown home the following day. The vessel was operated by Independent Shipping Ltd, part of the Dudman Group.

Shoreham had arrived under the Cook Islands flag at Santander almost a year earlier, on 13 January 2013, to load cement and clinker on a normal voyage, but along with other vessels operated by the group was detained under arrest. She has now been sold for scrap to help pay off company debts. The vessel was built at Goole as the collier Ballygarvey in 1992 for the collier fleet of John Kelly of Belfast. RC
