VLCC Carrying Diesel Changes Destination for Third Time

New-build VLCC Maran Aphrodite, which is carrying a 200,000 metric ton diesel cargo from Asia, has changed its final destination for a third time, according to Reuters ship-tracking data.

The ship was originally calling on Rotterdam before changing its destination to New York harbour on May 11, then to Gibraltar on May 29 and as of June 5 it is calling on Southwold in the U.K.

The tanker is currently off the coast of West Africa.

The vessel was chartered by Total, according to traders.
