Now That Is An Ugly Ship

FPSO

CDR Salamander features China’s largest FPSO on Ugly Ship Thursday. He writes;

A ship only a Captain could love. I don’t think anyone will be making those cool mahogany models of it anytime soon, but I ask you to BEHOLD and up close and personal shot of the 300,000 DWT $230 million Hai Yang Shi You 117, China’s biggest floating production, storage and offloading vessel.

Our Ugly Ship pick is the Norwegian Gem, as photographed by the Lisbon Cruise Bog:

The Fairmont Summit is not much prettier but it is a working ship.

Can you believe an FPSO can actually be beautiful or that people actually pay to board the Norwegian Gem? Shocking, we know.
