One of the largest ships to ever visit Shelburne Harbour docked at the Shelburne Ship Repair slip on Monday morning.

The ship, the 228-metre The Rt. Honourable Paul E. Martin, is a self-unloading bulk carrier and is in Shelburne for an emergency engine repair.  Twenty people will be employed on the 43,000-tonne vessel until late April.

The vessel is owned by Canadian Streamship Lines and has been in service since 2012.

Correction: An earlier version of this story described the RT. Hon. Paul J. Martin, an older ship in service with Canadian Steamship Lines.

    Amy you are describing the wrong ship. The Rt. Hon. Paul E. Martin was built in 2012 and is 228.55 m long. The ship you describe is the Paul J. Martin.
