Hi Arne,

Hereby I send some information about the Sassaby. She's since 2003 sailing as Azeza Moon for the same owner. When you give me your emailadress I'll send you a image with new building information.

Hi Arne,

Thanks for the info. I see what you mean about the similarity with Hugo Peters built vessels, such as the Kiefenberg and Graebe ships, as per John Jones's photo here

However, as you mention, the Sassaby was definately built in Holland. Unfortunately, I don't have an explanation, but maybe Hugo Peters licensed the building to the Dutch yard using their hull plans.

Hi Phil,

what an interessting vessel. The hull is definitively a product of the shipyard Hugo Peters in Wewelsfleth/Germany. The wheelhouse seems to be a dutch construction. Do you have some more info's about her? The only I have found is the following:

1971 Duivendijk,Lekkerkerk/Z92
Gearless Ship 1977

Dalgo-03, Ans Korntransport II, Nor;
Houda F-, dto, Bol

More info wanted!

rgds from Rendsburg/Germany
many thanks for posting
