IMO : 6504010
Build : 1965 by Ateliers et Chantiers de Nantes (Bretagne-Loire), Nantes in France, nr 14710 as Nataliya Kovshova
This one is an ugly ship “par excellent”, on above picture she is looking a bit run & worn-down and neglected but even in her glory days (if you can call them that) she was the strangest looking vessel……see below picture:
They made a big mistake during the building of this vessel: they put the accommodation on her facing the wrong way!! and nobody noticed during her whole life-time!!
I guess it got something to do with the fact that fishermen are more looking aft to their fishing gear then forward to the rest of the world….anyway: here is a pic of one of her 2 sisterships which explains a bit more.
All 3 of them are definitely classed as OUS: Official Ugly Ships!!
Rest assured that 2 out of 3 are already scrapped….the third one probably as well!
