When photographing this ship I could not determine that if it was actually as short as it appeared or if it was an optical illusion.
The ship is in fact as short as it appears in my photographs and it is described as being an Autotransporter Car Carrier. Its sister ship the 750 unit vehicle carrier Weser Highway made a first call, for the company, to Dublin Port from Zeebrugge in February 2017
“K-Line”. A German shipping company whose name in full is: K Line European Sea Highway Services (KESS) and as you can see from my photographs the abbreviation is emblazoned on the hull. Early in 2017 KESS introduced a new service connecting Dublin Port to all major ocean Ro-Ro [roll on - roll off] carriers in Northern Europe for onward shipping around the world. The description is a bit confusion as I am fairly certain that we do not export cars from Ireland ... it is possible that they collect trucks or trailers for the outward journey.
