Thank you all for your comments.
Pieter, there's a time frame for the main events after launching/floating out, like sea trials and delivery; it usually takes 3 or four months.
Thanks Rene for the useful information. This owner is a major client here at the yard, with many ships on order.
Now about this "used car" approach when choosing the delivery date. I've seen it done, but all our December delivery dates were kept, and one vessel scheduled for February was moved forward to December. I guess that was the case of impatient charterer...

|Yes I would agree with Phil. Same goes for new cars, lot of people leave them in the showroom until January. Again nice photo. One nomally sees Naval vessels of same class moored 3 abreast but Suezmax tankers!!!.|

|Unless the markets are buzzing and charterers can't get enough ships, owners with ships ready at this time of year often delay their ships until January. It might seem daft, but a January 2018 build date versus a December 2017 build date can add 10% or more to the value of a ship.|

|hm, it looks like fitting out these ships takes more time than building, although most ships are almost ready for trials when they leave the building dock, as far as I know.|

Hi Pieter, I've heard nothing of the kind. I think that the project is running rather smoothly, with the fourth vessel "Marlin Siena" currently on her sea trials, and other ships in this series under construction around the yard. I happened to notice one additional name, "Marlin Samara". Also, the same owner is building LPG tankers here.

Is the owner reluctant to take delivery?
