30,000 DWT international deep sea, 5 holds, wide hatch type multipurpose dry cargo and self trimming type, double skin bulk carrier with provision for grab handling, 14.3 knots, equipped with MAN B&W 6S42MC MK VII Marine Diesel Engine, 4 sets hydraulic level luffing cranes and hydraulically operated end folding hatch covers.
The design features of the TRADER vessels have been developed through research and consultations with our many internationally prominent and successful clients. The latest trends in type, parcel size and trade in international deep sea transportation, the future requirement of ballast handling in restricted waters, the latest trends in shipboard manning practices, latest regulations governing pollution, ballast management safety and communications have been incorporated in the TRADER design. Latest developments in structural analysis, ABS SAFEHULL and finite element analysis have also been incorporated in the design.

Single screw motor driven double skin bulk carrier, capable of carrying grain in bulk, metal concentrate, iron ore, scrap metal, coal, bauxite, salt and sugar. General cargoes such as steel products including hot coil, forest products, packaged freight and palletized cargo. Long cargoes such as pipes. Bagged cement, and bagged cargoes.

Developed by the same organization that developed the ‘F’ series such as “FREEDOM”, “FORTUNE”, “FRIENDSHIP”, “FREEDOM MKII”, “FANTASY”, “FESTIVA”, “FORTUNE MKII”, “GALAXY” AND “VALIANT” type vessels. The well proven design philosophy of the ‘F’ series such as cargo flexibility, operational safety and economy and realistic capital cost by series building will be the basis of the “TRADER” series.
