Oleander

IMO : 7820497

Build : 1980 by Schichau Unterweser, Bremerhaven in Germany, nr 2281 as Pride of Free Enterprise

English Channel Ferries…seen them here a lot and here is another one again……and probably won’t be the last. I don’t know what it is with those things but they got a definite knack for ugliness!

Anyway: see the pics below which say more than all my previous posts about the same category ships.

And in her younger years:

    the rear upper accomodation decks very much remind me of a coffin.
    absolute twilight-zone design.
    wouldnt like to use her for a trip

    ¡puberty! sow your wild oats, Pride of Free Enterprise! –that name–shudder. Well, the new name is nice; we have to give them that.

    I think Gegner is more in the mark then he might think. These rear upper accomodation decks were deadly on her sister Herald of Free Enterprise back in 1987….
