New paint, new name

2017-1009-3918
The America arrived Duluth this morning (October 9, 2017) after a short wait at the anchorage off the Duluth piers. She is now loading wheat at Riverland Ag (below). This ship was built in 2010 for the Flinter Shipping Group in The Netherlands with the name of Flinter A. It was soon changed to Flinter America but the Flinter Shipping Company went bankrupt in 2016 and Wagenborg Shipping, also in the Netherlands, purchased her. They of course had to get rid of the Flinter in her name and since they already had a ship called the Americaborg, they decided to rename her America. You can see the new Wagenborg paint job above, using their usual grey ship color to paint over the Flinter, leaving her new name to stand alone.
