NOR Tigerfish

IMO : 9399430

Build :2007 by Jaya Asiatic Shipyard – Batam in Indonesia, nr 860 as NOR Sky

I know that heli-decks are the latest “must have-accessory” in the offshore vessel world but in my opinion this is just a little bit over the top. Or actually: quite a bit OTT.
It’s like the shy gentle kid at school suddenly going all wild and showing up one day with a big pink mohawk.

At least the crew doesn’t have to bother filling up the forepeak ballast water tank anymore.

Here she is in her “gentle”-period.

Thansk again to Denis for the tip!

    You’re welcome, Bart!
    I heard the whole construction is obviously made of aluminum and it’s light, but I’d love to see his ship in a sever storm!

    Regards,

    I’ll bet the stability book is an interesting read, especially the wind heeling load case with a decent helo on the deck. I’ll bet the ballast tanks are pressed to keep her upright

    Stability ??? Rough weather ??? Whoa….It must be self guided too ! With an obstruction in front of the helmsman like this , one has to wonder about the importance of visual reaconing…

    it is safe, stable and cool! I will say it is a ship with style. I was on it for a month!

    whole construction on aliminium is absurd.if its true, why AB bother to chip and paint the deck?and the rusty deck??Totally boring boat and rolls to much compares to its looks and size
