Ship Photo of the Day: HNLMS Evertsen Showing Off in the Gulf of Aden

HNLMS Evertsen (F805) a Dutch De Zeven Provinciën-class frigate conducts a high speed turn while operating in the Gulf of Aden.

Powered by two Wärtsilä 16 V26 diesel engines, and a pair of 18.5 MWRolls Royce Spey SM 1C gas turbines, and two propeller shafts, this ship is capable of reaching speeds of 30 knots while providing fleet air defense and command capabilities.

30 knots is likely how fast she was going right before they gave her a right full rudder in this photo…

Not sure who took this photo, but it’s probably safe to assume it was a Dutch Navy photographer
