    Does anyone know of the large ferry Australia flogged off to either Denmark or Norway (can't remember which) some time ago?. She was sold as the Princess of Tasmania in excellent condition but had to go as she was too large to finance on a run not much in demand. (it is a notable stormy and rough trip from Sydney to Tasmania)

    Didn't one of the ferries out of Bodø also originate from Australia.... was it the "BODØ"?

    Quite a special ferry with four props and gigantic fuel consumption, even though only two props were used in Norway.

    Could that be the one?

      Yes, that is definitely the ex-Oz ferry -the Princess Seaways. The one named Bodo may be, but she looks a clumsy design and would not slip through a heavy sea very well to my way of thinking. Thanks to tommi and Jan-Olav.

    "Bodø" does originate from Australia, as "Tamarii Moorea VIII", and I think she has been an expensive investment both for OVDS at that time, who had to do lots of work, for example make her funnels taller to lead exhaust away from the accomodation. And yes, she is a thisty ferry, wich makes her expensive in service as well. A cool ferry in my eyes, and a loud one as well. She got a hanging deck a few years ago, increasing her capacity of cars from 72 to about 90.

        That was a good shot of the ex-Australian ferry Bodo, but I don't recognise her "chunkiness". Sh does look extremely stable however.

      I do not know how to delete a second accidental copy of a post. Tried several times. Bother.

              Another new Norled ferry, the "Kvernsund", at HaMek for some rebuildings before she can be put to service between Grytøy-Sandsøy-Bjarkøy. "Strandebarm" and "Skutvik" were laid up at HaMek.
