Hi Ilhan!

This beauty was built in my hometown. She got a very lucky destiny! She'll become a museumship in Hamburg.

At the moment, she's on her trip back home!
We're very, very glad to welcome her on Tuesday 30th january!

Super photo Ilhan, I was in Hamburg in the Fall of 1957, I did see a few vessels being built, she could have been posibly one of them, anycase its was great to see this type of vessel again, I believe she came to Canada recently, or a year ago or so.
