Click here for an overview of Brazilian shipyards from about 18 months ago.  STX OSV in Niteroi since then has become VARD, a Fincantieri holding.  Skandi Salvador was at the VARD yard last week.  Shipbuilding–like oil & gas–are multinational concerns clustered in locations of production, like the North Sea.  The NYTimes this week had a story about a world center of petroleum expertise and innovation . . . Aberdeen.

The orange vessel to starboard of Skandi Salvador is CBO Manoella, built less than a mile away at the Alianca yard.  Can anyone identify the smaller tug made to the starboard side of the small green and white tug SM Niteroi?

Moored off the bow of Skandi Salvador is (I believe) the future Skandi Urca.

And forward of that, on the high and dry, the soon-to-be Skandi Paraty.

And between the two, it’s Skandi Angra.

Recent products of that yard–albeit under old ownership–include the following:  the 2012 Sea Brasil,

and Skandi Amazonas (2011).  To appreciate the rollers off Copacabana–where I took this foto–notice the small fishing boat in the trough on the beach side of Amazonas‘ stern.

And finally, one more product of the same yard is A. H. Giorgio P, 2008.

Finally . . . I’m curious . .  what is the citizenship of the crews of these vessels and what are their hitches like?
