Astican Shipyard - Las Palmas

Well here we are at the shipyard in Las Palmas. After a calm crossing of the Atlantic, the Spanish/Italian invasion was a fact yesterday the 24th of April. At 03:00 am we were at our final drydock position and at 07:00. No more water under the keel for a while. Masses of workers from the yard at Astican, and from the Italian ship builder Fincantieri came onboard. About 2 weeks of intense work has commenced. The Fram will be a polished lady outside and inside when the time at the yard is over, and we will keep you informed every step of the way. The picture today is taken by our Purser assistant Line.
