Vertom Joy: A State-of-the-Art Vessel

With an overall length of 128.26 meters and a width of 18.7 meters, MV. Vertom Joy is an impressively large vessel. She has 110 meters of flush deck space and her carrying capacity is a huge 11500 DWT - with plenty of room for securely carrying your cargo within the 80 meters of unobstructed box hold space. And with open top notation, this vessel has space for your high & heavy pieces too.

Boasting a diesel-electric propulsion motor, Vertom Joy leaves a greener footprint on the routes she travels than most ships her size, helping us to fulfil our obligation to the climate.

Groot Ship Design supported owners (Gerrit Schram / Vertom) and shipyard (Thecla Bodewes) with naval architecture and engineering allowing the vessel (of which the keel laying took place in October 2013) to be finalized.

Finaly, after ten years, the vessel is completed and put into service.
