Isn't there too much information in the sentence?

Hello

FISHLAND will be the third ferry belonging to the shipowner to sail on the route.

I just want to make sure that I can "enrich" the simple structure "to be the first/second/third to do something" or "to be the first/second/third who/that does something" by putting more information in the sentence.

In other words, FISHLAND belongs to the shipowner and FISHLAND will be the third ferry to sail on the route.

or

FISHLAND belongs to the shipowner and FISHLAND will be the third ferry that sails on the route.

Taking all the information provvided so far, I would like to ask you if it is possible for me to use the sentence in question "FISHLAND will be the third ferry belonging to the shipowner to sail on the route"? Doesn't too much information warp the meaning?

What is your opinion?

Do you agree?

Thank you.

The first sentence has a different meaning from the 2nd and 3rd. It implies that the owner has two other ferries which have sailed the route earlier.

I think it is "sail the route", not "sail on the route".
