    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Fascinating discussion …not least because I tend to see Nordstjernen as feeling the more traditional, and Lofoten somewhat more trendy-modernised! However, as I’ve often said, Nordstjernen’s aft lounge with it’s big windows and basket chairs feels like a conservatory extending onto the aft deck, so perhaps that light=modern is what you are feeling Tommi.

    I’ve only been aboard the ships since 2003. Nordstjernen has always looked the same since then (other than one carpet design being replaced). Lofoten on the other hand has changed a lot, and the new curtains and furniture design make her seem “more modernised” to me. I’ll see if I can find some earlier photos I took, and post on Lofoten’s thread. (Edit: now done, here.)

    Heading for the cabins, Nordstjernen’s wonderful corridors certainly look more traditional.

    But elsewhere, as Gestumblindi has pointed out, the fashion of furnishings changes through the decades. So to see NX looking terribly trendy take a look at the old TFDS brochure pakarang found, and HurtigruteMartin’s late 80’s photo of the front lounge!

      That is the LB 200 out there laying the Langeled Pipeline to UK.
      At Ormen Lange there is nothing on the surface to be seen, unless there is some drilling or other work going on.

        Nordstjernen is sold to a small steamship company in Bergen.

        When the new owner was known a few days ago, some feared that Nordstjernen would end up like "Bruvik", a ship bought by the same company 3 years ago, that was sailed to a yard in Poland and ended up never coming home again (yet). Riksantikvaren was contacted and as of yesterday, Nordstjernen was temporarily protected/preserved by Riksantikvaren to prevent the new company from taking her abroad.

        However, the new owner say they are planning on restoring her to her original conditions, then maybe use her as a cruiseship along the coast, or as a hotelship.

          It's steamboat made the purchasers of the 56 years old steamer ship. Owns before the steamer made veteran ship MS "Bruvik."

            Oh, I really hope and pray she will remain in the country for many more years and that she won't be too "modernized".

            Thank goodness her new status prohibits her to sail to Poland: if that was ever the possibility.

            Here is an "old" image of Nordstjernen passing Korsfjord in the morning of March 23rd 2012:

                            There Is apparently a group of Netizens in Japan that like to google translate from Japanese to English and back again to Japanese. The result is apparently hillarious.
                            Maybe the same will apply to Norwegian/English/Norwegian??? (Or any other two languages)
                            Could this become a new CVF thread???

                              Now the new owners are searching for investors: http://www.bt.no/bergenpuls/Soker-in...n-2796089.html

                              It also says this:
                              It is not the acctual steamship company (Indre Nordhordland Dampbåtlag) that have signed the contract and paid the deposit to Hurtigruten ASA. It is a shipping company that belongs to the same owner constellation. A company from Karmøy (Vestland Rederi). 80 percent of this company is owned by Grand Ocean Shipping Company Ltd, registered in Gibraltar, with an adress in Poland, and also owns 100 percent of Indre Nordhordland Dampbåtlag. In addition, the Grand Ocean Shipping Company owns Vestland Marine, a shipping company also based in Poland, controlled by Jarle Rasmussen, who also established the Karmøy-company, Vestland Rederi, and is the director of Indre Nordhordland Dampbåtlag.

                              Jarle Rasmussen, a native of Sauda in Norway, have emigrated to Poland. Rasmussens Company also leases the shipyard where the steamboat MS "Bruvik" has been in over three years.

                              Ownership hidden

                              - Who owns the Grand Ocean Shipping?
                              - It is a foreign company, and I will not say anything about who owns it.

                              In the registers of Gibraltar the real ownership is hidden behind a law firm called Attlev Management Company. This company is listed as the owner of the entire share capital of 100 pounds.


                              Thank GOD that Nordstjernen got protected this fast.. I get a little worried Hopefully I have no reason to. Time will tell.

                                Impressive series of pictures from "NX" both inside and outside, Jan-Olav.

                                Jan-Olav you have an impressive eye for detail and photos taken from different angles that makes this to an elegant image project.

                                Let's hope she stays that way forward as we are all used to seeing her, the elegant old lady
