||Heavy Lift Vessels|
|Rotterdam 1/5/83. A rather poor, messy photo. However this ship is significant in that, along with sister Ank Winsemius, she was one of the first vessels designed specifically for heavy-lift transportation.
One ship that always eluded me, however, was the Gloria Maris. A heavy-lift ship contemporary of Pieter Winsemius, and a bizarre conversion of two identical Dutch coasters joined to form a catamaran with the addition of a 150 tonne crane!
