Scotline Marine Holdings are pleased to announce that we have taken full delivery of the Scot Navigator. We christened her on Friday 7th July at Scotline Terminal Medway in Rochester.
A beautiful day in Rochester welcomed the Scot Navigator and her guests, which was a great opportunity for us to get people together and celebrate. The day consisted of a traditional christening ceremony, followed by a chance for the guests to mingle and inspect the vessel.

The Crew of the Vessel with her Godmother
Fortunately for the superstitious crew, the christening went without a hitch. Glenda, the ship’s godmother, spoke to the crowd before cutting the ribbon and everyone toasted the vessel.
Thanks to everyone who joined us on Friday, it was a great day and we appreciate your support. From everyone at Scotline and beyond, we wish the Scot Navigator many years of happy trading! Contact Intrada Chartering if you have a (photogenic) cargo for the new vessel.

Just a quick news update today with couple of short time lapse videos taken recently of our Scot Isles. She recently carried a cargo of pipes and we attended the discharge. These videos show just how much is involved when handling a project cargo.
Scotline are pleased to announce the launch of the Scot Navigator from the GS Yard B.V. in Groningen. She will become the 10th vessel in the Scotline fleet.
On Wednesday the 22nd February 2017 the Scot Navigator was launched at the GS Yard B.V. in Groningen. She has a modern, efficient design which makes her the ideal acquisition for our expanding fleet, whilst being built to comply with all the latest legislation including provisions for ballast water treatment.
The Scot Navigator will have a length of 88 metres, a beam of 13.75 metres and a maximum sailing draught of 4.90 metres. This will give her a timber-fitted capacity of about 5,500 cubic metres. She will be powered by a Caterpillar engine and will be sailing under the British flag like the rest of the Scotline fleet.
We expect her to be fully operational and delivered in May 2017.
Scotline are pleased to welcome the Scot Leader to our fleet.
Scotline have recently added a new lady to our fleet having taken on the Scot Leader, ex-Odertal. She is similar to our Scot Trader at around 4500 DWT. She’ll be flying under the British Flag.
What the Leader brings to our fleet is not only a second vessel with a deadweight around 4500 tonnes, but equally importantly is her high cubics, holding 6,360 cubic metres in her single hold. For a full specification have a look at her details here. A full pdf can also be seen there showing more details and the particulars of her hold.
She is just completing her dry docking this week and will be ready for service soon, looking stunning in the Scotline livery and ready to work. Thanks must go to our superintendents Mark and John and everyone else involved for getting her up to such a high standard so quickly.
Scotline welcomes back the Scot Ranger to service.
In addition to taking on the Lady Ariane recently, it feels like Scotline has another new vessel after the Scot Ranger returned looking brand new from her 20-year special survey and dry docking.
After 2 weeks of hard work from our superintendents the Ranger is back in service and ready for another 20 years of work. The photos below show her when she arrived and after their work was completed, both visually and mechanically ready to work. We have always believed that if you look after a vessel, and invest in it proactively, she’ll repay you with long service and will save money in the long run. This is what we’ve done with the Scot Ranger and it is now paying dividends.
