If it was not for those azimuth stern thrusters, you would have heard of a serious incident and being quite close on the shore I would have surely snapped some serious and dramatic pictures, but thank God this has been averted by the skilful handling of the vessel.

Never seen azimuth thrusters working so hard! Glad that she was undamaged by the incident.

Hi Steve,you nearly did not catch her at Palma at all, as when she was sailing in to berth at Boilerwharf, which is not her usual berth ,she passed very close to Senglea point and the red warning buoy mooring chain was dragged under her port hull and furious use of her stern thrusters evaded a serious accident, I was just a few metres on the rocky shore beneath Senglea point and witnessed the whole scene. Just see my other shots of heron "more of this ship"

Another fantastic shot of one of my favourites! Managed to catch her in Palma after you.
