    The captain of Viking Cinderella doing his stuff:

      Great spot!

      As you may have noticed from my past comments: I love images of ships crew of all ranks and positions. Perhaps because I relate to their work so much?

        When the BØKFJORD was about the be launched some years ago, I almost applied for one of the positions on board.... needless to say, I remained with the ferries!

          Large luxury yachts are regularly seen I Aalesund. It is seldom if ever know who the VIP guests onboard are, or in many cases, who's arriving for a cruise on the fjords.
          Here is some I have spotted the last few weeks. First a very large and impressive sail yacht:


          The Gene Machine spent a couple of days waiting:


          The crew took the change for a cruise of their own with the tender:


          The Pakarang view:


          Port bow view:

            Can somebody interpret to signs below the name? (Probably something to do with the Genes):


            Stern view:


            Stbd. quarter view:


            Suez lights pointing aft??:

                Maybe he was here to see where the stones for his replica Stonehenge came from??

                You know, I've never really felt the need to build a replica Stonehenge. I can't help feeling it would look better if it had the top on it. We find that many visitors that come to see us are desperate to see Stonehenge, but disappointed when they get there. Avebury is far more impressive to my mind.

              A smaller version spent several days at anchor on Aspoyvaagen:




              This one was a Brunholmkaia:


              An even smaller one at Skansegata:

                But it is not only expensive toys for Millionaires and Billionaires to call at Aalesund Port. Here are some commercial vessels seen lately, many being regulars.

                Holmfoss are here on here regular trade to/from continental European ports / West and North Norwegian ports:


                Sveafjord is an old regular:


                Both seen arriving last night.

                Ro West is one of the new and sophisticated Live Fish Carriers that is owned and operated from Aalesund, but not seen very often:


                Fish Farm service boats are getting very common sights in town:

                  I didn't know that the Norwegian Fishery Directorate had their own patrol boats. I was of the impression they chartered in boats as needed and when needed to keep an rye on things around the coast.
                  This one was spotted abt. three weeks ago in Aalesund:




                  They were joined by this smaller boat, before leaving port:

                        Live fish carrier heading back to Storfjorden for more trout:


                        Reefer ship Langfoss standing by in Aalesund:


                        Nice sail yacht Malaika visited Aalesund a few days ago:

                          A green day in Aalesund. Bergen Nordic leaving after delivering her cargo at Osholmen:




                          But why is she flying a "flag of courtesy" when registered in Bergen?:


                          Shortly after the Live Fish Carrier "Øystrand" arrivedØ




                          More on the "Øystrand" in another thread.

                            And when leaving inn the evening:




                            Svealand at the reefer store in Skutvika:


                            Leaving in the afternoon:


                            Disappearing behind Slinningsbua:

                            She will be back soon.
