The ULCC’s, delivered between December 2001 and March 2003, were designed to very high standards in keeping with the tradition of safety and excellence for which the Hellespont Group has been known. Apart from being amongst the largest tanker vessels in the world, these vessels were best known as the “White Elephants” which took into consideration the sheer size of the vessels but also their all-white coating of the hull, the accommodation and the deck.
