M/S "Carl Offersen"

- the most beautiful ship in the Jebsen fleet -



Here some shots of the M/S "Carl Offersen, - another Far East trader of the Jebsen Company.
I never had the pleasure to serve on this ship, but would have liked to.
It was commonly agreed, that the M/S "Carl Offersen" was the most beautiful ship in the Jebsen fleet, - and indeed -, as you can tell from the following pictures, the hull lines and the bow are indeed very, very nice - - -
This is a real ship!  :-)
