    Six days stay on board costs you Around kr. 45000
    Do not have any reports from these tours

    This ship was originally built for Finnmark County's shipping company (FFR) in 1956 as Tamsøy

    Bergsund Rederi AB bought the boat in 2014 in Santa Cruz, Tenerife and sailed home to Stockholm.
    Since autumn 2014, she has undergone repairs, refurbishment and certification at Kummelnäs Shipyard in Nacka.
    AHA!

    That's why she looks familiar. I have most likely seen her as Tamsøy at some point. She also reminds me of another VDS-vessel... Strønstad (but they are probably not even close in appearance).

    Bergsund is one of many boats currently on whale watching in the north of Troms county around Skjervøy.
    Here she is inbound to Tromsø this morning.

    Interesting name I think, very person-related name. I wonder when we get a Jan Olav S sailing along the coast_ ?

    The river ships are partly still similar with such coast freighters. Same developments.

    The NORDKINN is such a beautiful and sleek vessel: the days of rusty old cargo-ships is thankfully not the norm anymore.

    Found a fact sheet on her from 2016, where she is described as a "reefer ship" acquired by NTS Shipping back in October 2017.

    Thanks for sharing the additions, kind of cool to have these images from a port too far away.

    Ohhh... I understand, quite a challenge to get the ship to be in the exact right spot that you need.

    Pictures of ships I think are best at sea, surrounded by only water.

    The so-called "pakarang shots" are challenge indeed, you have to get the ship heading right towards you.
Working...
