MS Beluga

I see from the British Sunday papers that MS Beluga will set sail (literally) from Bremen on Tuesday for Venezuela. For part of the journey she will have engine power supplemented by the power of a SkySail. Does anyone know more about this? Are there any photos of Beluga? Are there any photos of a SkySail in use?

Hi David,

I saw lots of photos of her construction on Dutch webside "Kustvaartforum" as she was built by Volharding shipyard in Harlingen, The Netherlands. I think the webside is named

There you have to browse the different threads. so did I the last months.

I only made a photo of the vessel when she was in Bremerhaven for final hull paint. Or you can try to get informations from Beluga webside in their news category.
