Tanker changes name for tenth time

The 5,136dwt oil/chemical tanker Bomar Juno , built at Marmara Shipyard in Turkey in 2005, was renamed in Rotterdam in late May when she took her tenth name, Northsea Sense. Built as Yildrim for Yilmar Shipping & Trading Ltd of Turkey she became the YM Mercury soon after delivery but quickly reverted back to Yildrim.

In December 2005 she was renamed Pacific Dhow, but by August 2009 she had been renamed Hermien. Four months later she took the name Pacific Dhow briefly, before becoming the Hermien again in the same month.

This time she kept the name for eight months before becoming Pan Agility, a name she retained for almost four years before becoming Bomar Juno in June 2014.

Owned by Bomar Nine LLC of London (Borealis Maritime Ltd), she has now been given the North Sea Tankers name of Northsea Sense. After her name change in late May she was towed from the Waalhaven, Rotterdam to Dordrecht by the tugs En Avant 9 (bow) and En Avant 20 (stern) to receive attention to her MaK engine before entering service again.
