    Largest sailing vessel of this type ever to visit Kristiansund arrived this evening. "Lady B" mooring at the guestdocks in Vågen, as the fenders of the Nordmørskaia was unsuitable for the vessel.
    I've 'stolen' some images from Brunsvika.net, so here we go


    People are coming down to the dock in crowds to have a look.


    She's 46 meters long and 9 meters wide


    This is her maiden voyage, and coming from Bergen and Ålesund, she was ment to sail to Svalbard. For some reason she will not, and the crew has decided to go to Lofoten instead.

    Lady B/Vitters Shipyard homepage, and please open the pdf-file in the lower left corner, as you'll read much interesting stuff and see drawings from her inside:

      Great photos Sterkoder, and interesting info. That shiny slim black hull is quite a sight.
      (Oh and I just had to get in first here before Captain made any “Lady C and Lady E” jokes!)

            I was rushing out when I hurridly saw your post this morning, and had rapidly clicked on the Vitters link in any case.

            But you know Sterkoder, I actually think that the photos you posted, the first view especially, has the “look and feel” of a Sterkoder photo.

            Which leads me to think that your local media should be keeping in touch with you when there are interesting maritime visitors to K’sund.

              Nah . . . far to easy these days when even the unusual letters aren’t a challenge – there’s even a Zara in the British Royal Family.

              In any case, your two Lady Commodores wish to retain their exclusive status!

                Heared in local media today that the "Lady B" is owned by a 82-year old real estate broker from USA.

                  Makes me think I should have never stopped working in the Real Estate market of Thailand....

                        Kristiansund will soon get a new sundbåt. The building of the vessel "Framnæs" is done by Klevest near Valsøyfjord, but the design is from around 1900.
                        Many pictures from the building process in this link:

                          Interesting article and images S!....

                          I know it says "gjenoppbyggingen" of the old "sundbåt" but it seems as if this is a brand new one built from the ground, based on old drawings. With "gjenoppbyggingen" I thought it was more like a restoration of an old one...

                          But this new boat will be very beautiful: definately an asset to the city once completed!

                            To make it straight;
                            Yes, it's a new building from keel up. But the steam machine is, (additional to the diesel one), from the original "Framnæs"

                              Thanks mr. S. I noticed that she will be double-propulsioned.... and the crew requirement would be one man at "normal" engine-operation, and an additional (wo)man if powered/operating the boiler.

                                Yet another Tahitifestival is nearing its end. Wednesday we had a great time over at the festival area at Innlandet in Kristiansund, when we had Jahn Teigen and Anita Skorgan on stage. These two are two great norwegian stars in the music and entertainment business.
                                (Jahn Teigen has a strong conection to Kristiansund, as some of his kins are from this city, and his cousin, Mr. Ove Borøchstein here in Kristiansund has written many of Jahn Teigens texts to his most famous songs)

                                There were total photoban towards the stage, but just before we left, I took two nocturnal images from the festival area towards the harbour


                                And from Thon Hotel at Innlandet towards the harbour and Gomalandet. The vessel is sundbåt "Angvik"


                                And as for the picture quality, these two were taken with my iPhone
