Lough Foyle

IMO: 7823310

Build: 1979 by Van Goor Werf – Monnickendam in The Netherlands, nr 668 as Saeftinge

More often than not the variety of offshore working vessels featured here are very far towards the top on the scale of hideousness. Therefore, I thought I’d provide a change of pace.

Whoever designed this small hopper dredger definitely had the appeal of her lines, not just her working ability, in mind. The result is a vessel that would look great as just a small coaster, which she kind of looks like, let alone a working boat like a dredge.

So, kudos to you, Mr. or Mrs. Naval Architect, a job well done!
