In my view, the sixth boro sees the regular traffic, the less regular, the new ones (new hulls or just new names) and then there are the exotics, vessels that might ever call here only once.  Vos Star is certainly an exotic, even though it had been working off SE Long Island for the past month.  I knew it was in Elizabethport and hoped I would be able to see it when it departed, and I did!

VOS expands to Vroon Offshore Services, and Vos Star is designed and equipped for a number of offshore services, in this case, assocated with offshore windfarm support.

The joy of shooting these photos as a vessel travels west to east is that you get lighted image as it approaches and then dramatically backlit photo as it recedes.  This was daybreak yesterday.  Had it departed an hour earlier, I’d have no photos to show.

The 2016 Fujian-built vessel is 223′ x 49′ and homeported in SW Netherlands. 

I’m not sure what its next job is, but AIS showed its next stop as East Dunkirk . . .  Belgium France.

Safe travels.

All photos, WVD.
