FINNJET in 1987
I was very fortunate to obtain this shot of her in the Baltic in September 1987 when she overtook our ship at the proverbial great rate of knots.
Her livery was as seen here by this time which I did not particularly like!
Her Baltic career lasted remarkably till 2005 when she was put up for sale and was initially used for accommodation at New Orleans in the wake of the devastating Hurricane Katrina.
She passed into various other hands after 2006 and was renamed DA VINCI in 2007 and was to become a cruise ship. This did not materialise and she was sold for scrap consigned to the beaches of Alang in 2008.
It later transpired that she cost more than her scrap purchase price to break up........
