I was thumbing through my photographs of the Bourbon fleet, and came across this of the Bourbon Borgstein. This ship is one of two UT722 LXs, still unique as the largest 722s constructed They were part of the Havila fleet when the company was purchased by Bourbon, actually still under construction at the time, as the Havila Surf and the Havila Borgstein. Their 20,000 bhp gives them a bollard pull of 200 tons. For those who might not know this is the entrance to Aberdeen Harbour before the construction of the new harbour control.

Photo probably taken in 2003 by Victor Gibson and posted here on 18th December 2017.
