Spanish John 2 Mallaig

The Spanish John II seen here at Mallaig harbour. The owner is the transport company Milligan Transport LTD.

Read this at their website :

The Spanish John 2 was built in 2003 by Nobles of Girvan, to replace the infamous and capable Spanish John 1. Powered by twin 230 hp Daewoo engines, she is 18m long by 6.5m wide and carries a deck cargo of 40 tons. This can be loaded via the bow door ramp, for vehicles, plant, livestock etc. or self-loaded with a 14 ton/mtr palfinger crane.
We use her to carry, pretty much anything and everything, all the essential supplies neccesary for life on the Inner Hebrides and Knoydart. Fuel, gas, coal, animal feed and hay, building materials, cattle, sheep, horses, house flittings, vehicles, tractors, diggers, all sorts of plant are regular cargos. (even took an aligator to Rum once). Fuel cargo is a specialitly of this boat. She carries 26000 litres of diesel in tanks below deck, this can be pumped ashore at varying speeds depending on whether a 25 litre drum, or a full bunker tank load is required. At full speed a whole load can be discharged in under 45 minutes.
One of her main duties is to supply the Scottish Sea Farms salmon farm in Loch Nevis with fish feed and fuel. This feed is transported to Mallaig on our own lorries, then shipped out to the sites as required.
