In July of 2017, the Pineglen was sold for scrap.
On 9-18-2017 she departed Montreal, under tow of Diavlos Pride, destined for Aliaga, Turkey
The Pineglen was launched in 1985 by N.M. Paterson & Sons in Thunder Bay as the Paterson. She was the last straight deck bulk freighter built on the Great Lakes.  In 2002 the company ended their long family history of operating Great Lakes vessels and sold their fleet of three vessels to Canada Steamship Lines. The Paterson, Cartierdoc and Mantadoc became the Pineglen,  Cedarglen and Teakglen. She was built by Collingwood Shipyards in Collingwood, Ontario. Picture above and below taken Sunday, August 31, 2000 as she departs Duluth after loading grain at Harvest States.

Above, the Paterson arrives Duluth on October 17, 2001; below, a day later she is docked at the Cargill elevator in Duluth.


  1. Looked like a fairly new vessel. Sad to see her scrapped.

  2. I wonder what the M/V Pineglen would look like if she was converted to Self Unloading Bulk Carrier
