New ship: Owari Maru

I've based this new ship in the Owari Maru, a Japanese large bulk carrier. This new ship was built in 2007 by Namura Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. ship yard, and has been run since then by Samarinda Maritima S.A. under Panama flag.

The real specifications for this ship are (taken from
  • Length: 319,58 m
  • Beam (~"width"): 54,0 m
  • Draught (~"height"): 24,30 m
  • Gross tonnage: 113928 metric tons
  • Max. speed: 16,4 knots (~28 Km/h)
  • Engine power: 22432 kW

After a bit of work using blender, these are some results:

This ship has been coded into Simutrans as a very modern bulk carrier, which has to fill the latest timeline gap, after 2007.
