Here's the Troms Lyra on its way north from the port of Aberdeen towards the field it's serving. It is a VARD PSV 08, the unusual bow design reflecting their VARD version of the XBow so that the ship will pierce the waves rather than riding over them. The ship is 85 metres long with 7300 bhp available. Troms is originally a Norwegian company but is owned by Tidewater and the ships are register in the Isle of Man, possibly with Polish crew. In the background you might notice the beaches of Aberdeen and the "multis" at Seaton. In Aberdeen council properties get the best sea views.
