    Royal Yacht Norge called at Aalesund today, on her way from Svalbard to Maaloy:






    A little detail; the royal launch situated over side and being launched/recovered by old style davits and block n' tackle:


    No Royalty on board, since she did not fly any Royal Standards from the masts.
    This was confirmed by a article in smp.no: https://www.smp.no/nyheter/2018/08/2...n-17368551.ece

      That is the absolutely most beautiful vessel we have in Norway, and there is no competition when she is out sailing. What a beauty!

        Another brand new vessel in the Fish farm industry showed up in Aalesund yesterday. But this is not you "run of the mill" live fish or feed carrier:




        She is the very first combined Live fish carrier cum slaughter vessel:

        She is able to go directly to the fish farm to suck up fish from the pens while operating on DP, then slaughter and chill the fish en route to delivery point in NW Europe.
        Initially she will be delivering in Hirtshals, Denmark, where facilities for processing and packing are already in place. Later this may be extended to ports in Germany or the Netherlands.

        Anybody that still think fish farming is a low tech industry with few if any opportunities for Mariners need to have look at this complex vessel.
        Not only is the equipment to handle and process the fish hi-tech, but the facilities for the crews are designed with an emphasise on comfort and well being:

          OMG!

          Thats something between a cruise ship and a private yacht. I'm truly impressed by the only photograph I have seen of the interior.

          In ferry companies, where profit is the ultimate and most important factor, crew are something that is a nuance for the operation. Hence, cheap, cheap, cheap as possible is the word of the business. Naturally, with as little crew as possible. Norwegian Maritime Directorate proudly stated a decade ago that "no more crew-reductions would be allowed based on economic gains for the companies". That statement is these days worth absolutely NOTHING!
