M/V Otello

They must love opera at Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics. In their fleet of vehicle carrier ships we can find “Fidelio”, “Carmen”, “Aida”, “Falstaff”, “Tosca”, “Turandot” and many more like that. They even have two sister ships named one “Porgy” and the other “Bess”!
Otello car carrier ship, IMO 9316141, Livorno
Ours is the 200-meter “Otello”, a sister ship of the above mentioned “Aida”. She is a PCTC (Pure Car Truck Carrier) with a capacity of 6.700 cars. (Picture taken in December 2012)

What a large freighter. Never seen one like it. It certainly hauls a huge number of cars. Fine photo.

VP, this is a wonderful image!

I have never seen a freighter solely for cars. It is huge!

Perhaps my little FIAT 500C came with this?

It is huge!

That person seemingly walking on water - brilliant part of the photo!

The size and shape of the ship are amazing, the name choices are fascinating, but the lone man out there walking on the water--who is he?!

And it looks like Otello is walking on the water.

The tiny people really give it a sense of immense scale! How poetic that their fleet is so operatic:) (And Happy 2014, hope it's off to a good start!)

Is there a man walking on the water?
