  • Re: ex HARALD JARL ::: ex ANDREA ::: SERENISSIMA :::

    I wonder if anyone else has noticed that the Serenissima Deck Plans show a view of the Port side masquerading as the Starboard side.

    The line of the main mast with respect to the funnel also needs to be fixed.

      For some reason, I don't think I have posted this picture before. It's Harald Jarl in her better days, southbound from Florø on a dark november morning. The light was coming very slowly, so I had to pan the camera while zooming, and therefore the ship is unsharp, but giving a nice soft effect of a fine ship sailing away in the dark.
      November 27, 1997 on Velvia.

      By the way; Serenissima is now moving, outside Bari, Italy, on her way to northern waters, I hope.

        That's a very cool shot Sigve! Impressive that you were able to keep the ship centered in the shot while zooming.

              According to marinetraffic.com, Serenissima has arrived in Poole :

              POOLE SERENISSIMA 2013-05-10 13:17
              Unfortunately, it's too far for me to travel just to get a few photos.

                  Well spotted Gaelsail.

                  Here's a photo and discussion on Yachting and Boating World - ybw.com

                  What a nightmare, but hopefully not too serious. Apparently the bow grounded on the Corran Ledge, which is sand and gravel, not hard rock, and the stern didn't ground (at least initially), so hopefully the rudder avoided damage.

                  Moreover, it seems she was refloated on a rising tide at about 01:00 BST Tuesday 21 May.

                    Yes, refloated and now anchored in Oban Bay. I think there is not enough depth for her to go alongside the pier (but this is from memory and could be wrong).

                    She is now visible on the webcam and here is the latest report from the MCA.

                    I'm not sure if her next cruise is going to start on time or if there will be a delay. My intention was to go down to Oban and taken some photographs of Serenissima, I'll check what is happening before leaving.

                      Oops - that's a shame - mind you the RNLI's photo on the BBC article is fantastic!

                        The RNLI in Oban and Tobermory post some really good photos and video.

                        Photographs of Serenissima in Oban Bay this afternoon.

                              That's a much better video J-O, with Serenissima floating properly as intended. Truly one of Norway's finest and looking magnificent.

                              I have worked out exactly where we are in this video; the cameraman is standing in Ferry Road at the Studland end of the Sandbanks chain-ferry crossing. Initially, Serenissima has Brownsea Island behind her with Poole beyond. She then turns to come through the Sandbanks gap (the mouth of Poole harbour) and we see "The Haven Hotel" at the tip of the Sandbanks spit.

                              By the way, a few years ago Sandbanks was said to have the highest average property prices on the planet Earth.
