Ships In Port

Hellespont Trader

With the Overseas Shirley down at the Maine State Pier, the Hellespont Trader is over at Pier 2. The owners, Hellespont, are a German company that have 17 vessels in service with more on order. Business must be good. This Suezmax was built in 1996 (and looks amazing) by Mitsui and flies under the flag of the Marshall Islands. Hellespont, somewhat oddly, has a blog and they have posted a link to videos of “life at sea” on board Hellespont ships and to a Youtube clip called Love Story. My favorite comment: “greek ships own all.”

The company has also posted pdfs of the technical drawings of the ship: here and here. They’ve also posted an extensive text pdf about the ship here.

The whole company seems pretty interesting and they have supplied an awful lot of information about their services and properties. They even have some of the crew blogging about their lives and work on board their ships. And, judging from the Youtube video, they have a bit of a fanclub.

[…] As of 4:25, The Hellespont Trader is also at Pier 2, evidently spooning with the HS Tosca… a weird sight. Possibly related […]
