Great, thanks for that. I have always assumed that she is one of the German/Scandinavian vessels built for the general charter market by one of the many companies that arrange these things for high income earners who put up the finance as a tax break. I don't know who she is chartered to at the moment but it should not be too hard to find out.

Hi Cboots,
I have just come across your comments on the Baltrum Trader as she has just sailed past my place on her regular calls to Brisbane that seem to be on a monthly or 6 weekly basis.
She is interesting in that not having any funnel to speak of, her owners logo is painted on the sides of the superstructure.
You have probably tracked this down already, but if not,here goes. I believe she is Chartered to Evergreen (with 4 others) on a Liner Service from Port Kelang--Singapore--Bne--Syd--Mel and return to Port Kelang.
