Even though I have featured this craft on the website before I could not resist including this of the Skandi Buzios, a stunning photograph of an amazing ship. It is a Vard 3 05, built in 2016 built I think in a Brazilian yard and equipped with this extraordinary J-Lay tower, like other pipe layers out there. All its capabilities are massive, with 20,000 kB odd of main engines and a lot of thrusters to keep it in position. It is 146 metres long and has accommodation for 120 people, and has eight decks between the main deck and the bridge. I have included a slightly larger photo on the main page.

Photograph taken at the end of last month and included here on 9th October 2017.
