Build : Under construction by Astillero Barerra – Vigo in Spain, nr ???
I hate to judge a vessel before she’s been finished, but I don’t particularly like the way she’s shaping up. An offshore vessel designed with accommodation in mind, and as a result, placing it to the aft, just doesn’t seem to add up well.
Add in a lot of curves towards the bow and her swept back mast atop the bridge, and things start looking worse.
Did I mention she’s supposed to be painted in her operator’s lovely color combination of bright orange-red and yellow?
It doesn’t help, as these prototype models show.
I guess we’ll see it my predication is true when she’s finished, but I’m sticking with my bet on ugly.
She’s been launched! Not much else has changed, but this provides a better view of her overall appearance.
I’d still say I’m fairly correct in my opinion, but I’ll keep updating as she progresses.
Well, I’ll finally make my declaration complete. Seeing pictures of Edda underway leaves me no choice but to be ultimately repulsed by the finished design. She looks like an old tri-siland freighter with some modernized lines, the stern chopped off past the accomodation, and painted in an awful combination of obnoxiously bright colors.
