The Vectis Castle Makes Her First Appearance

As I was arriving at the dock for the cruise, I looked out and saw a new ship.
 The ship in question is the Vectis Castle.  I'm not sure if she is new to the Lakes, but she is new to this blog.
 She was built in 2013 at the Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Company in China.
 She is registered to the Carisbrooke Company in England.  She also flies a British flag.
 She is 123.96 meters long and can carry almost 13,000 cubic meters of cargo.
 she kind of reminds me of some of the Wagenborg ships with that bow.
She was picking up grain, but I'm not sure where she's headed.
