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 Scotline’s expanding fleet, whilst being built to comply with all the latest legislation including provisions for ballast water treatment.

The vessel 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. MV Scot Nagvigator is designed by the Dutch Design agency Groot Ship Design and built by GS Yard ( Groningen).

JR Ship Brokers & Consultants has a close relationship with Scotline for many years. This cooperation finally resulted in the new building of Yard 169, MV Scot Navigator.

JR Ship Brokers & Consultants provides services such as support with the development and contracting of newbuilding projects, as well as sale and purchase brokerage. In addition, consultancy services can be provided to shipping banks, shipyards and ship owning companies.

JR Ship Brokers and Consultants is part of the JR Shipping Group. Founding JR Ship Brokers & Consultants has been a logical step for the JR Shipping Group to take, following the considerable expansion and diversification of activities which have taken place over the past few years. Initiating newbuilding projects as well as the sale and purchase of second hand tonnage are core activities of the group. Since 2000, newbuilding projects and S&P deals have been realised with a total investment value of more than € 500 million. More and more frequently, we have assisted colleague ship owners with their newbuilding and S&P projects. JR Ship Brokers & Consultants is able to offer these services on a professional basis.

JR Ship Brokers & Consultants has extensive experience in initiating and supporting newbuilding projects and S&P transactions involving multi-purpose tonnage, container feeder vessels and products and chemical tankers – important market segments for many European shipping companies. Moreover, JR Ship Brokers & Consultants offers expertise in other market segments like Ro-Ro, offshore and fishing vessels.

JR Ship Brokers & Consultants’ management has been active in the Dutch shipping and shipbuilding industry for more than 25 years. A broad experience in newbuilding contracting, project management and S&P brokerage as well as a international network of shipyards, shipping companies, ship brokers, shipping banks and other players in the maritime industry could be of great value to the projects you may wish to realise. Of course, a very personal service is being offered, in which confidentiality and commitment to your interest are key values.
