IMO : 7047344

Build : 1971 by Busumer Werft, Busum in Germany, nr 237 as Atlas Scan

We don’t see much small general cargo containervessels here, probably because their design is usually almost the same, but now we have got an outstanding example of an ugly container vessel here! The hull looks a bit odd, the cranes are ugly ones and the accommodation seems top-heavy!

And the colorscheme is also no very well chosen, dirty yellow over idem green! (And you know how I think about green).

    She looked a bit better before she was rebuilt in the 90s. Here’s a shot of her from 1994 – http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=827716
    Perhaps, they managed to get the most of their ship in terms of carrying more containers and their effective (un)loading by such rebuilt.

    Also, notice the pull-out support leg, standing on the pier during loading operations – common feature for 70s heavylifters.

    Again I learned something today.
    A) I didn’t know she was rebuild but indeed she did look a little bit better.
    B) I never saw one of those pull-out support legs, never heard of it before as well…looks a bit dodgy system to me!

    The only thing I like in Tege is that every single thing on her harmonizes with the rest of things there, making this ship look like a stack of stalactites+stalagmites on a some bitten off hull.

    For example, Internavis-I had 2 of those:

    Also, maybe a decent candidate on “ugly ship” title here?
