Such a big thank you to post a new picture of this old but superb vessel! I've seen her newly repainted in june 2006.
Do you know the Nikolay Morozov was dying at Nikolaev Shiprepair Yard (Ukraine) for a long time and was near to be broken up. But due to efforts of the former director of the yard, the vessel was saved and tugged to Azov Shiprepair Yard. Repair started in 2004. After the complete restoration of all her gears, mechanisms, systems and hull, the vessel was launched again in February 2006 and renamed Vyacheslav Ilyin in honor of former director of the yard.
