MV ‘ATLANTIC COMPASS’

Images of Con-Ro Vessel MV ‘Atlantic Compass’ in New York Harbor
3,372 Lane m. Ro-Ro/Container Built 1984

Rare type of vessel today, as she’s a combination of a containership vessel and a Ro-Ro (Roll on /Roll off) vessel, thus the abbreviation Con-Ro. Built under the prevailing thinking of other times when shipowners were trying to hedge their exposure and trying to cover two different markets with the same ship, or offer horizontally-integrated shipping services to certain geographic markets. In our age of specialization, these ships draw lots of nostalgia for an aged past…This vessel and her sisterships were built in Malmö, Sweden at the Kockums M/V AB shipyard, a subsidiary of Saab, then mostly a defense contractor to the Swedish government. European-built vessels, especially vessels built i Sverige (Sweden), unfortunately are not a common sight these days…

Sistership vessel MV ‘Atlantic Concert’ from same owner was featured on this blog about a year ago, still in the New York Harbor / Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.
