IMO : 9277266

Build : 2005 by De Greus, Leeuwarden in the Netherlands, nr 242

Stan Muller pointed me to this one, he thought she was ugly and he is right: she is very ugly! She looks like an oversized iron although not as big as these 2. But she has got something what the other two don’t have: a disaster of a paintjob. Is it yellowy green or maybe acid green, whatever it is called it’s ugly… we got a double ugly here: an ugly ship with an ugly paintjob. I’m amazed that people actually can stand looking at the thing. There is one good thing though: since she appeared on the rivers & canals of the Netherlands the prices of the houses there plummeted.

And if you think you have seen this color before: you are right: here on this ship, where Bonny wondered whether they supply the crew with aspirin or sunglasses. I have no idea why but this hideous color is the standard paint for a lot of ships belonging to the Dutch government so be prepared to see more of them in the future!

    I asked him (he is my neighbour, next door but one) and he wasn’t insulted although I think Fiona wasn’t too happy with me!
