Built for the current Owners and operating under Australian Flag the
Vessel is maintained to a very high standard. The concept behind the
design was to facilitate the movement of cargo (zinc concentrates)
from a draft restricted river based terminal and then to move the
product to open waters where it could be discharged into larger
vessels waiting offshore.
