Mystery Vessel Photo No.  3
When I have a picture of a ship, where I don't know the name of it, or other information, then it will appear here.
If you have information of that ship, then please E-mail to me for that information.  ( )

Mats Saether wrote to me : is one of the 208.000 dwt early VLCCs under construction at HDW in Kiel.
She is seen exiting the dock. I assume the photo is taken from the top of the gantry crane.
I believe it is perhaps “Texaco Europe“, “Texaco North America” or a sister. The Shell tankers built there in the
same period did not have the two light towers on the deck between the front mast and the manifold.
Notice the TEXACO name on the hull !
