Build : ??? by Iris Catamarans Aigrefeuille,La Rochelle in France, nr ??

This is a fast ferry operating in the city of Rotterdam, ugly isn’t she?? We have seen a similar one here before:  this one.  And doesn’t the white paint look a bit bland?? Yup, indeed! The boffins of the operating firm thought the same so they launched a contest for the best paintjob design, to liven things up a bit. And after much deliberating & discussing miss Kwannie Tang was chosen as having come up with the best design. Please see below for the result:

The new paint (sticker) job does hide the original ugly lines a bit and it surely livens up the whole picture but to be honest: If this is the winner of said contest then I really do not have any desire  at all to see the other submitted designs.

And I have come across another one of these floating Tupperware-rejects: Dama de Valencia, apparently a harbor tour boat of some kind……ugly though!!

This is a negative point of interest for the beautiful city of Valencia, Spain.
