Today in Table Bay I spotted a ship that looked so familiar. Turns out to be the sister ship to the old SAS Outeniqua. This is the IVAN PAPANIN built in 1990 yard number 6001. In 1991 the ALEKSANDR SLEDZUK yard number 6002 was built which later became the SAS Outeniqua.

Nice pic Allan.

She's a regular visitor here in Cape Town. They almost lost this ship at sea, but managed to save her a couple of months ago. She's been at anchor for close to a month now. Costs probably too high for her to be alongside with no business coming her way :(

If only she and her crew knew the affect she has on us that miss OTQ.

Good spotting, I would not have recognised it.

If you go to the previous page on this thread, you will see some close ups I took of her last year.
