This one came to my attention by being in the news for an incident in the South China Sea…Thank you World Press. And she is ugly, no wonder the Chinese tried to stop her, I would if that sight came into my waters! Again a SWATH-design (as here) but why the boxy bits on top of it?? Was the designer out of angles or did he or she only have a ruler to make the drawings?
There are 4 other similar (almost the same) ships in the MSC-fleet, all more or less as ugly as this one:
Mmmm, let me think……………..The views of the vessel were Impeccable, she was Able and very Effective in being ugly and, according to the Loyal visitors of the site she came out Victorious as an Ugly Ship!
