The Arco Dart

Once the River Parrett was a busy river and Bridgwater a busy port but now only one ship, the Arco Dart, still regularly comes up the river and docks at Dunball Wharf to unload sand for building.

The vessel can be seen regularly powering through the Bristol Channel and along Burnham Bay on her way to Dunball Wharf.

The ship measures 67.7m in length with a 13.0m beam.

She weighs in at a whopping 1309 tonnes with a deadweight of 1700 tonnes.

Built in Southampton in 1990 she is utilised by her owners as a dredger collecting from Dunball Wharf and unloading at Avonmouth which is where she is permanently positioned.
