Hello from Hollandia

Beautiful sunset over the Atlantic Ocean

Hollandia is currently sailing in the Angola Basin in the Atlantic Ocean. Captain Thomas Stephensen is bringing our newest, mega freight ferry home to the North Sea, and has shared some photos from the voyage.

Thomas says: “Hollandia is still performing very well, and we have an ETA alongside Vulcaanhaven of Friday 22 November. This morning we changed the main engine; however, we will continue sailing on one main engine. It is still rolling quite a bit and swells keep coming in from the south-west. The ocean is not particularly busy and we have only seen three ships in the last 24 hours.

“When everything goes according to plan, and the vessel is operating impeccably, there is naturally some downtime during the long voyage to Europe. Luckily, we have some very creative colleagues on board, and that really starts to show when they have too much time on their hands.

As can be seen in the pictures, they have found ways to use all the leftover materials that were delivered in Singapore, even the packaging! And with some quick thinking, we now have a unique set of outside furniture with which we can relax while enjoying the fresh sea breeze and the stunning sunsets.”

Thank you to Captain Thomas Stephensen for the pictures and update. We will have to make do with a picture of that beautiful sunset over the Atlantic Ocean.
