Michel S,
During all period of the ex-MÜNSTERLAND at Niteroi she was at a very difficult point to take pictures.

The ex MÜNSTERLAND left Germany in 2001. Perhaps the ship was in Mexico first, before sailed to Niteroi. Do you have pictures of the ship in Brazil? Will be interesting. So the ship was scrapped 2012 or 2013, right?

Michel S,
The ex-MÜNSTERLAND arrived to a small shipyard at Niteroi City about 2002/2003. After it the ship was changing wharfs for a period of 10 years until finished at Cassinu Scrapyard.

Very interesting picture! Thank you! @ Edson de Lima Lucas: Do you know, when GLORIA I ex FEHMARN I ex MÜNSTERLAND was scrapped there? I just found some pictures of her at Cassinu Shipyard. Pictures of scrapping SPIRIT OF BRAZIL VII very welcome. The foremast is gone now I think....

Another ex-German coastal passenger ship finished there some years ago.
It's possible the FEHMARN I - IMO 6412138.

The three with the light green bulwarks look like LAB 150 (IMO 9414230), LAB 151 (IMO 9441489) and LAB 152 (IMO 9441491)

The notice to donate this small passenger ship to the Brazilian Navy never concretized.

Ah, looks like our posts crossed, Edson. Thanks for the info!

Other ships in this picture ....
From Left: LAB-152, LAB-151, D'MARCELA, LAB-150 and ASTRO UBARAMA.
Only the ship in the far right is impossible to identify because the distance.

Correct rd77,
The small passenger ship is the Spirit of Brazil VII - IMO 7305629.
Phil English on Jun 29, 2017 13:25 (11 months ago)
yes, very interesting Edson, but can you tell us the names of any of the ships in the picture?

rd77 on Jun 29, 2017 13:21 (11 months ago)
Wow, very interesting! Do you know the name of the little passenger ship? I think she was originally from Germany...
