    The much older Fish Feed Carrier Arctic Senior, also in Aalesund yesterday:






    She has had a long and varied life:

      Arctic Module Carrier PUGNAX, cought with my Pentax (haha), anchored at the Freifjorden 1 Anchorage not far from my home.
      PUGNAX is the sister ship of AUDAX built at Guangzhou Shipyard International Company Limited (China) in 2016. She has two shaft lines rated at 12 megawatts each, can reach a top speed of 13 knots and break 1,5 meters of ice at 3 knots.
      Her length is 206 meters and she's 43 meters wide. Operated by Red Box Energy Services, she's now heading Sabetta in northern Russia, on the western shore of Ob, where a port and LNG plant is under construction.

        That is my kind of ship, only thisone can't submerge. (At least not voluntarily)
        What was she doing in Freifjorden?

      I'm amazed at the size and modern design of live fish carriers in Norway these days - there must be great revenue in this kind of trade.

        WAOW. Folla looks really loaded and deep in the water!

        I had no idea she was trading that far north - I thought her route ended near or at Bodø.

          This one could almost have gone in the Veteran thread, but she lacks a few years to qualify.
          Vargoy seen on here way in to Fiskerstrand yesterday:


          She is now on her way to Frihetsholmen: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...vessel:VARGOEY


          PS> I didn't even know there were any place with that name in Norway.

            Surprised to see FRØYTIND as far north as Tromsø... she is often seen here on the fjord to Trondheim as well.

              Polfoss arriving in Aalesund 15. July, 2017:


              And leaving, stern first, 22. July, 2017:


              No she did not spend all that time here. She's a regular visitor on her run from the Netherland to West and North Norway.

              As is the sister ship, the Svartfoss:


              Owned by an Icelandic company, but flying the flag of Antigua & Barbuda:

              But manned by East Europeans.

                    Trying out the new version.
                    We have had some VERY nice large yachts visiting Aalesund lately.
                    Here is one of them:










                    Even the capstans are made from stainless steel:


                    And the fair leads is "gold plated":


                    Last upgrade was in 1993:

                    Totally different designs but I think that both the TALITHA and the Gene Machine are two exceptional looking vessels. Would be hard - at least for me - to pick which one to go on a trip with, if I ever was asked, thank you very much!

                        Talking about ice breakers, can you spot the vessel?

                          A few buckets of paint left over after they'd done the building?

                          A good attempt to hide the ship with that color and background

                        WAOW!

                        Tommi's 4501 is an exceptional image in that the ship and the building behind appears to have the exactly same shade of paint! Almost too good of a match actually! Well done getting that photo!

                        The Kvitnos image is superb too. Actually today, I saw "Kvitnos" on AIS as we crossed the fjord at work. But it wasn't this one, it was a sailboat with the same name!

                          That is a really brilliant shot with that misty fog!

                          A shot you just need to be there to get - and can't plan for!
