Esnaad 710

IMO : 9390795

Build : 2008 by Astilleros Balenciaga – Zumaia in Spain, nr ?

While I was searching the Interwebs for pictures of another ship of the Esnaad company I stumbled upon pictures of the above vessel, and it immediately caught my eye, something didn’t look right about her…….and I was right.

She looks like she has 2 bridges, why?? I dunno!……so now we have ourselves a mystery……..What do you think??:


If this is indeed a second bridge she is not the only vessel in the whole wide world to have 2 bridges, please see below for a few more examples of schizophrenic vessels.

Diamantgracht (IMO : 9420813)

More of her sisters (D……gracht) have the same double sighted look.

Havila Phoenix (IMO : 9407990)

Dunno source, via the Interwebs

Looks like a complete ballroom up there.

Ramform Sovereign (IMO : 9390460)

We tackled her already extensively in this post.

And I’m sure there are more out there!

    It’s some kind of lounge or recreation room for the off duty officers, lots of new offshore ships have them.

    To add to Joy’s comment, here’s the recreation room on Havila Mars (one of the finest designs of AHTS I’ve ever seen, btw)
