G3 Marquis

The gearless bulk-carrier G3 Marquis was built in 2014 and services the iron ore and agricultural trades.  The ship was named in recognition of Marquis wheat, which is a high quality variety of spring wheat.  This essential grain cargo is a derived hybrid of Red Fife wheat specifically developed to be grown in Canada.  The G3 Marquis is capable of carrying 27,400 metric tonnes of grain with the efficiency benefits of the Equinox Class design.
