Bahri Yanbu

Number 6 of 6 new ships built by Hyundai Mipo, Ulsan South Korea, for the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia, Bahri Yanbu arrived this morning at pier 31.

The 50,714 grt RoRo, container, cargo ship was delivered in April, and this was my first chance to get a photo. The multi-purpose ship appears to be identical to her five sister ships, and is an impressive vessel. Equipped with a pair of cranes that can lift 240 tonnes, a small container carrying area forward, an open car deck and a vast stern ramp, the ship was built specifically for the cargo needs of Saudi Arabia.

  The ship also appears to have larger than normal accommodation area. Although not advertised to have passenger capacity, I suspect that she does carry more than crew from time to time.
