Seeing double in Hamilton Harbour
Bermuda’s newest cargo ship steamed past its predecessor in Hamilton Harbour yesterday.
Staff at Neptune Group, managers of Bermuda Container Line, saw double as the Oleander, which arrived from its builders in China last Friday, was passed by the now-named Oleander III on its final delivery to the island.
Barry Brewer said the old container ship, which has been sold, had been replaced after “29 years of reliable service”.
The new custom-built ship has a bigger cargo capacity and better endurance in rough seas.
