Here is the Sapura Jade owned by Sapura and Seadrill and built by IHC in Holland. It is 145 metres long and has a maximum deadweight of 31,000 tonnes. I have posted it today just to illustrate how much larger many of today's offshore vessels are, compared with the UT 722 which is alongside it. The UT 722 used to be a pretty large offshore vessel. And thanks once more to Captain Jan Plug, who keeps us up to date with this sort of thing.
