Mali Rose crash

The coastal freighter Mali Rose crashed into boats at Port of Penzance in Cornwall, UK. The vessel, which only began service last month between Hugh Town in Isles of Scilly and Penzance in Cornwall, was maneuvering to berth at the harbor, but was pushed by seas and adrifted over the berthed vessels. The tug and yacht suffered some damages and breaches, but remained afloat and without water ingress. The coastal freighter Mali Rose did not suffered significant damages and proceeded to the pier, where docked successfully several minutes later. The ship will remain at the port until further special survey and inspection for her seaworthiness and hull strength.

An investigation has been launched after a new freight ship crashed into the boats moored in Penzance harbour.

No one was injured in the collision and the full extent of the damage is still being assessed. There was no report for water pollution during the incident. The company which runs the ship said it had launched a full investigation.

“The Mali Rose was involved in a minor incident on Saturday, September 9, at 6.25pm when entering Penzance Harbour. It has been confirmed that no-one was hurt”, said the spokeswoman for the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group. “At this stage, it is thought that the ship collided with a trawler and small yacht within the wet dock area of the harbour”, added she.

The coastal freighter Mali Rose (IMO: 9065144) has overall length of 50.20 m, moulded beam of 10.60 m and maximum draft of 3.00 m. The ship has deadweight of 137 DWT and gross tonnage of 968 GRT. The vessel was built in 1992 by Eide Contracting in their shipyard in Hoylandsbyrgd, Norway.
