The “Al Farahidi” was built in 1998 by the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd, in Japan. The last shot, with the tug “Alessandro Neri”, was taken under the rain. (Photos taken last June)

I like that shot on the lower left with the men being dwarfed by the ship's hardware.

Speaking of Italian waters, the Swedish coast guard ship Poseidon is currently working there saving refugees. The other day they had to fire warning shots when an Italian vessel approached.

I wouldn't want to have to count all the containers aboard. That IS a large vessel.

I like the letters in the name.

That is a major load of containers, but looking at the waterline the ship looks lightly loaded. Perhaps many of those containers are empty? I note they are mostly owned by the shipping company. Interesting photos.
