I have bit of a soft spot for small perfectly formed offshore vessels and the Acergy Sabia is one. It seems to have started life as the Seaway Sabia back in 2001 as one of the Stolt Offshore fleet, and as the companies have changed hands has managed to keep busy, and possibly off the corporate radar. So now it appears with a Subsea Seven logo on the funnel, but no-one has bothered to change the name since the last name change. It has a deck area of 128 m2 and an unknown bhp and bollard pull, but it is still out there being useful.
