A ship that had become a permanent fixture at Shoreham Harbour has finally sailed after a five-month stay.
The United Ocean was detained in November by Port State Control for a number of deformities, which were suitably resolved to allow the ship to be released on March 14. It sailed five days later. Before too long, the terminal that the United Ocean occupied will be home to a new ship, continuing the steady flow of import and export throughout Sussex via Shoreham. Julian Seaman, harbour master and director of marine operations at Shoreham Port, said: “Shoreham Port is pleased that the vessel has been released and has now sailed.”
