Build : 2004 by J.J. Sietas KG Schiffswerft GmbH & Co. in Germany , nr 1142

This type of containership already isn’t the most pleasing to the eye but this vessel seems to bearing one of those Mickey Mouse hats they sell in Disneyworld. Those bridgewings are a major eye (ear??) sore.  Add to the equation a strange bended funnel, a undefinable color, an unusual construction of the hold and here and there something that looks like discarded scaffolding and you got yourself an ugly ship.

It’s a standard containership type from the JJ Sietas yard in Germany, the bridgewings do not seem to be part of the original design, consider them a accessory, an add-on. And a bad add-on for that matter (a Badd-on??).
