Seaboard Marine earlier this month completed the purchase of the M/V Mare, a 974 TEU (twenty-foot equivalents) container vessel. The versatile ship arrived at the Port of Miami today and has been renamed the M/V Seaboard Atlantic.

“The vessel has the proper size and characteristics for the various types of cargoes that we carry to many nearby markets. We initially intend to base the M/V Seaboard Atlantic in Miami and serve the northern zone of Central America. With her unique ability to handle overwidth containers through flexible cell guides, it will be well-suited for the types, lengths and widths of containers carried to and from these countries”, said Edward Gonzalez, Seaboard Marine President. “The customers moving these varied cargoes are vitally important to Seaboard Marine and have been the reason for our success for nearly thirty years. By purchasing the M/V Seaboard Atlantic, it strengthens our overall fleet and broadens our foundation." 

With a deadweight of nearly 11,000 tons, the vessel was built in 2009 at the Detlef Hegemann shipyard in Germany. The vessel had been previously trading in northern Europe.

Gonzalez added, “The Seaboard Atlantic is a well-constructed vessel, less than three years old,  that has been extremely well maintained. We are very proud to have acquired a fuel efficient vessel of this quality and look forward to her being a workhorse in the Seaboard Marine fleet for many years.”
