Well I did some research on Shipspottin.com and I was looking at some yachts with build year 2012 and in dutch waters and I saw a yacht with a name Oceanco Y703 also a very impressive yacht but i suddenly remembered that in the yacht her AIS name was Oceanco so I searched Oceanco and I found this!

http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1604964
she is build at Oceanco in Alblasserdam and she is called Oceanco Y708 and isnt it a beauty  :2thumbs:

http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1676186
here seen leaving Scheveningen at her sea trials and the name is probably a secret because a big thing is hanging over it so you cant see it, here home port will be George Town.
http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1675909
with an impressive length of 85.5M will she have some more pics soon on ship spotters forums.

some history from Scheveningen has arrived yesterday evening
this is the Green Klipper (ex- Orange Klipper from Jaczon, yes they do more than fishing they have 2 or 3 from the biggest reefers)







The Jaczon star is still on it (stil a little bit of proud for the "Scheveningers" (the people who live in Scheveningen))


yes she has an logo from Seatrade on the funnel but that is because Jaczon owns a piece of Seatrade,  well better said Cornelis Vrolijk owns Seatrade for a piece (because Cornelis Vrolijk owns Jaczon and Jaczon owns a piece from Seatrade)

did a big trip last monday on my bicycle, I cycled from Scheveningen to Hook of Holland (20,3KM) and then from Hook of holland to Maassluis (I stopped somewhere in the middle between Maassluis and Vlaardingen) I cycled a total off 65KM :doh: 
I enjoyed the trip very much only the wet weather was annoying
 




Union Boxer with the Vikingbarge 5 and the En Avant 21 as stearing tug (this is the reason why I was cycling to Maassluis because she already passed Hook of Holland)

Geo Focus left Maassluis








SD Rebel waiting for the Chemical Marketer

former dutch Coast Guard vessel Com R


and there was the ship where I waited for the Flandria Seaways still missing her everytime I go to the port of Scheveningen but I was so stupid to cycle to the other side from Maasluis (I was standing near Vlaardingen) and I could only photograph here when she took the corner at Vlaardingen and when she had passed Maassluis (stupid trains) but from every fault you learn so next time better  :thumbs:

thankyou,
hmm Sea Cadets such a simple word that I couldnt remind that from my own :doh:
And so they are all those old tugs just in front of your house, but if I didnt saw the Hudson I would never took these photos because I was already underway to Vlaardingen but I missed also 1 thing and that is the Arie Visser she was in the dock where the Voyager and RWS 78 were docked, if I cycled more to the dock I probably could photograph here too.
but next time better next vacation (end March) I will try to cycle the same route but now to Vlaardingen and then hoping there would be much more traffic.

Thanks. It also occurred to me that even the lifeboats have a bulbous bow these days.

Actually, I meant they seem to have a different design-mechanism of the davits. Perhaps to allow the lifeboats to be lowered when the ship is listing more than 15 degrees (i.e. Costa Concordia)

Ah yes, they were rather sticking further out than usual compared to other cruise ships I've seen.
