The new ferry under construction (over 3 years) in Portugal to Timor Leste. Haksolok means Happiness in Tetum language. Really it is the steel from abandoned construction of "Anticiclone", a car ferry that was under construction for Portugal but denied by Azores Authorities, the islands here it was destined.

Interesting, Ricardo
ANTICICLONE was building as IMO 9434072 - but I suppose that not enough of that was used in HAKSOLOK, which has IMO 9830446.

Memories of the saga ATLANTIS, her original intended running-partner - rejected by the Azores Government as not meeting contractual performance, a failed purchase by Hugo Chavez, accusations of corrupt purchase by a Portuguese company (bought for about half the amount received on sale four months later) - then eventual sale to Hurtigruten as SPITSBERGEN.

David is true.
Atlantida was a big story in Portuguese ship construction. Fortunately he found a good destination in Hurtigruten.
When Anticilone was denied, the steel was selled, and are used in this ship. I heard that they didn't use the blocks of the ship, but only the steel of them in this construction. The truth is that this ship is very similar to Anticilone.
