!!!!!!!     20-06-2006 :  This site has been awarded with the Golden Maritime Web Award    !!!!!!!.
The awarding body noted that :
What a fabulous website ( for those of us who are tanker fanatics !!!! ) I have never seen such a
great collection of photos and information ( and especially the information on the VLCCs and
ULCCs ) I see you have even got the new mega-monsters, the Hellespont vessels ( which are
obscenely huge !!! ) We have no hesitation in granting your website our
GOLD award (as attached).

Some background information.

Hello and welcome to this Esso Tankvaart Mij. archive on the internet.
This site is devoted to all shiplovers world-wide, and to people who are interested in ships and shipping related stuff.
With this site I want to give you a chance to see some of my work. I like seeing ship photos from other people on the internet,
so I decided to build up this site to publish some of my own photos. I got many E-Mails from people all over the world that are
fascinated about this site - a good reason for me to go on working at this site !!!
Another thing I want to mention : All the photos on this site can be downloaded and used for whatever you want, but please,
don't sell them to any other. I think that everything that is related to ships and the photography of ships is much too expensive.
Even on the internet I have found a lot of pages that were called like "ship photos for you..." and so on, but without any money,
you could not even see a thumbnail of any picture.
My question : Why not just having fun with the pictures - why do all these people want to make money with this great hobby ?
Of course, you will find some commercial aspects here, too, but this only gives you a chance to get photos printed.
This site will not get commercial in any way.
I hope that in future there will be a lot of sites like this - without any costs but with a lot of interesting ship photos !!!
Please enjoy your visit here and send me a comment.
