Tanker Isabel Knutsen

Photo of the Isabel Knutsen approaching Port of Rotterdam, Holland 10-Aug-2005


Editor: the oil products tanker Isabel Knutsen (IMO 9175535) sails under United Kingdom flag. According to vesseltracker she measures a length of 160m, beam of 24m and 13,753 GT. However, this doesn't look like 160x24m to me...
The Isabel Knutsen was built in 2001 by Naval Gijon, Spain.

From the Vesseltracker web site on 20 July 2010:
"The "Isabel Knutsen" was refloated in the early morning of July 16, 2010, and was anchored just outside the Port of Galveston. Tugboats were able to free the tanker in the night with no damage to the ship. It was carrying more than 17,000 tons of liquid chemical and about 700 tons of fuel oil. None of the chemicals were spilled, but some of them were offloaded to reduce the weight."
Dimensions according to the Knutsen web site:
Length overall 159,62m
Length between perpendiculars 149,79m
Extreme breadth 23,00m
Extreme depth 13,44m
Amazing how a telephoto lens makes a ship look much shorter!
