Welcome to the Marine Gallery of May 2022, a monthly segment on our blog featuring the five best pictures of every month, selected by members of the MarineTraffic Photo Moderators. These could include images of vessels, ports, or lighthouses from around the world.
We encourage everyone to submit photos by signing up on the MarineTraffic site and taking advantage of the easy-to-use uploading process. View more vessel photos on the MarineTraffic photo directory.
This month, we are focusing on the top five choices of different vessel types below:
Beautiful sky colours and calm seas always create the ideal opportunity for a nice picture like this one of the Agot; she is a reefer and is flying the Estonian flag.
Last year, she made 21 port calls in the UK Coast and Atlantic trade area, and 100% of her 20,733 positions received during the past month, were all from Terrestrial AIS stations.
Check out more about this reefer here.
Spotted here at Longyearbyen, while enjoying an adventure in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, this is Hanna Resvoll.
This boat, actually a dive vessel, has spent 22 days underway for the past month! Impressive, don’t you think?
Fun facts: Did you know that this Arctic town is known for its views of the Northern Lights, or that the modern Svalbard Museum chronicles the region’s natural and cultural history?
Check where this picture was taken, and more about Hanna Resvoll here.
Sailing under the flag of Liberia, this LPG tanker is the Navigator Gemini. She is 160 metres long, and her carrying capacity is 20,365 cubic metres of Liquid Gas.
Her latest position was reported in the port of Wilmington earlier today, and her status at the time was ‘moored’. Wondering how old she is or what trade areas she last sailed in? Check everything out here.
Among the 104 pictures of this undoubtedly charming yacht, this one you see here was uploaded to our directory in May of 2022 and was taken at the St. Peter Port. This town is one of the ten parishes on the island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands.
Built in 2009, she is 60 metres long, and she prefers sailing the Med, the Caribbean or the Adriatic Sea. If you are wondering what flag she is flying, visit her detail page here.
“The vessel departed from CAGLIARI, IT on Jun-02-2022 and is currently sailing at 12.8 knots with South direction heading to IBIZA, ES.“ we read when clicking on the Valiant Lady’s detail page, and it hit us like an ocean of inspiration for some travelling through our minds.
What’s more? She is sailing under the flag of the Bahamas, and we can’t help but start tracking all those amazing passenger and cruise ships that travel to all those summery destinations and exotic places around the globe.
If you are wondering where she is sailing right now, find this and more about her here.
