She and her sister are currently the largest Bulkers in the World and have recently overtaken the Berge Sthal
Some views from the bridge and engine room casing ,
Note the pictures can take some time to load.
Her sister recently suffered structural defects / damage while loading !
I did some trips on cape sized bulkers, good times and great ports. She looks pretty miserly in the old crew comforts? No pool and still just a crappy old wooden pilots chair on the bridge... What are the cabins and officers bar like?

Anybody have a picture of the "Breda J" or her sistership whose name I can't recall? She was in and out of the quays in Cork when I was a child in the 1970's. Only recently I read that she was used to bring a fuel of some type from Whitegate into a pipeline on the quays. IIRC, they were owned or leased from/to Jones Shipping which I believe was owned by a crowd in Dublin. Thats something else I can't recall-what website i was reading about them!!! I do though, remember their funnels-black with a green/white stripe around the ......lower half of the funnel or was it the middle of the funnel?
Rathgar was another one of their ships.
