North Ocean 102

IMO : 9382229

Build : 2008 by MetalShip & Docks, Teis-Vigo in Spain, nr 286

Brandspanking new this vessel, on the pictures above just returning from her sea-trails. I can imagine this company wanting to paint their vessels in striking colors so they stand out from the regular offshore-cable laying crowd, marketing & PR-reasons offcourse. But they should have consulted a color-adviser that wasn’t colorblind!

And to differentiate their vessels from eachother they decided to paint the number on it, AS BIG AS POSSIBLE, so everybody was really dead-certain which one they are looking at.  Convenient as they have build already 1 with 3 more to follow.

The first one is being operated together with Bourbon so it has a BIG B on the sides.

    The company I work for has apparently Purchased the 102 and will be teaming up with North Oceans.
    Hopefully we get to paint our colours on her, Blue, White, and a red Stripe 🙂
