IMO : 9162631
Build : 2000 by Jiangnan Shipyard, Shanghai, China nr ?? as Norasia Salwa
Futuristic looking, odd angles, strange slopes, a rounded superstructure (partly). She is a very strange-looking vessel this MSC Asli. I have no idea what the designers had in or on their minds when they were sitting behind their sophisticated PC’s but I don’t think their visions came out as anticipated.
Also by the look of the strange little overhanging bit on the stern they forgot something during their brainstorming sessions and added it as an afterthought.
She once was blue, making here even more standing out from the regular boxy crowd.
And there is a sistership as well:

And I happened to stumble upon another sistership, going with the quit cute name:
IMO : 9162605
I never knew blue kiwi’s existed!
And to make the Quartet complete:
Although she doesn’t have that little hangover thingy on her stern the other 3 do have……and there is a bit of difference between the various hulls.
And there is another one:
IMO : 9162629
And you know what: I’m actually starting to developing a bit of fondness for these vessels……or is that just too wrong?
I wonder how many more of this type will surface??
