Got a tip??


If you stumble across a picture (on the interweb, in a picture album, on your camera or somewhere else) of what you think is an ugly ship and ugly enough to be a star on this website then please leave me a mail on:


Please attach the pic of the victim with a good resolution to the email and put in as much details as possible (place, name, date, time, your name, etc etc).

Keep an eye on the site to see if it appears.

Thanks a lot!!

    watch out for the upcoming norwegian epic. from the pics already available, it’s looks like a cruise ship carrying a heavy bulky box on its head. totally out of place and doesn’t flow with the design. very ugly.

    You really should put the Norwegian Epic on this site, she looks like she’s got an appartment block built on top of her bridge. Very ugly from the front…just look at the renderings, she’s the most ugly cruise ship ever. And her stern is sooo square..

    Anyway, I think this is a great site!

    Norwegian Epic is awfull! No wonder the lifeboats are ready to launch. Passengers can abandon ship quickly when they have realised their mistake or is it in case this top heavy bus does what she lokks like she will do?

    I could not find any other link to this ULF other than on Vic Gibson’s excellent shipsandoil site but it is a worthy uglyships entry.

    I had a fun time going trough your blog, thank you for that! But I noticed the absence of a group of unusual vessels that were custom designed to build the 9 kilometer long Oosterschelde storm surge barrier (Oosterscheldekering). Though each was unique in itself, they hardly won any beauty contests. The ships were the Mytilus, which had vibrating needles to improve the soil, the Cardium, which rolled out concrete foundation mats, the Ostrea, a lifting vessel that put in place the 65 concrete pylons, and finally, the Macoma which was designed to stabilize the Ostrea. All were dismantled after the project was completed. The Ostrea was built by the Rotterdamse Droogdok Maatschappij in 1980, and parts of it were re-used in the “Svanen” which has been featured here before.
