I usually like to get the full specification of any ship I post on the website, but just for a change there's one about which I know very little. I seem to remember taking the photo and wrote a few words about in in my July 2001 newsletter. It used to be known as the De Jin,and had at the time been reclassed by Lloyds Register and was apparently going to be managed by a Norwegian company. It looks a bit like a UT 704,  but longer, and of course its construction predates the developing skill in Chinese yards for building offshore vessels.
