My 128i Cabrio is here.................

Well, not here, here,,, but here - somewhere on this ship the Otello. :biggrin:



Here's the ship's schedule. She should be in Halifax on the 12th of March.. I just hope she doesn't run into an iceberg or a U-boat wolfpack...

If you go to the WW Logistics shipping website they report that they loaded 417 BMW onto the Otello in Bremerhaven on Feb 27th & 28th..
She was built in 1992 with 52,500 gross tonnage, which is equal to approx 5.2 million cubic feet of enclosed space on the vessel.
I don't know if that is small or large for a Cargo ship, but must be enough to hold 417 Bimmers, eh?

I guess it is hard to tell from the picture but 417 cars takes up lots of room so that must be a big ship. I know I have seen the huge freighters that come into the docks in Richmond with the Japanese cars and they are absulutely massive. I have seen one close to a BC ferry and it made the ferry look small. I think you get a different perspective when so see two ships side by side or a ship up close in real life.
