What was Seafari Explorer doing in Dunbar? Their office stated: "A large crude oil carrier, Elandra Kilimanjaro, has been offshore for a few weeks waiting to go to Hound Point off Edinburgh to fill up. There have been more and more vessels anchoring off Dunbar in the last couple of years as once they pass the Forth Ports limit-line they get charged huge fees to anchor within the Forth, so many opt to wait outside the port limits to save some money.  Dunbar Harbour is a very handy port to use for the crew-change jobs and the Harbour Master has been very helpful to us. The new crew goes out and the old crew must wait until their replacements arrive. It will help bring in some much needed income for the Harbour Trust so everyone is happy!"

ELANDRA KILIMANJARO is a Crude Oil Tanker that was built in 2020, sailing under the flag of Liberia with a mainly Latvian crew. The ship has a carrying capacity is 299999t DWT and her current draught is reported to be 20.1 meters. Length (LOA) is 330 meters. Width is 60 meters.
