Seen from the Isle of Inishmore Ferry in Pembroke Dock while waiting to leave dock.

I understand this ship is a Oil/Chemical tanker built in 2005. It is 1922 gross tonage with an average speed of 8.5 knots.

I think it looks very dramatic with its red paintwork.

@Nigel: They certainly need a bit of colour. Very drab area really.

Interestingly documented. So slow you think it might be better off with sails :)

@grouser: These sort of tankers just trundle along but the looks of it.

I like the red and white as well as the parallel two-tone aqua building.

I like its paint job. These can be so ugly and this brightens it up a bit.

Oil is big money on the Milford Haven waterway (Cleddau river) and a permanent sight since the late 60´s.Further up river nature takes over again.
