Scotline are pleased to announce that on Wednesday 22nd February 2017 the Scot Navigator was launched at GS Yard B.V in Groningen, Holland.
With her modern, efficient design and the unavailability of suitable second-hand tonnage, Scotline decided she would be the best possible acquisition for their expanding fleet. She has been built to comply with all the latest legislation including provisions to be ready for the ballast water treatment system. The Scot Navigator will have a length of 88 meters and a beam of 13.75 meters and a maximum sailing draft of 4.90 meters. She will be powered by a Caterpillar engine and will be sailing under the British Flag like the rest of the Scotline fleet. Scot Navigator is expected to be fully operational and delivered in May 2017.
