News 064 : Joint Ceremony for S467 and S468

m.v. SALLY ANN-CKyokuyo's last big event in 2006 was joint ceremony for naming and delivery of S467 and naming of S468 held on December 5. The 13,400tdw multi-purpose cargo boats are sister No.3 and No.4 ordered by Carisbrooke Shipping Holdings Limited.

There were 34 guests from United Kingdom, including Mr. Ian Walker and Mr. Phil Jones, Chartering Directors, and family, who made the celebration even more joyous and heartwarming than the previous ones.

The ceremony started at the outfitting quay with the naming of S468, which was given the same name as her namer, when Ms. Sally Ann Bell, the partner of Mr. Phil Jones, declared the ship's name as "SALLY ANN-C".


At the reception - seeing goddaughter offThe second scene took place onboard S467. Ms. Sian Walker, this ship's godmother and daughter of Mr. Ian Walker, surprised the entire attendance with her speech in fluent Japanese ! The vessel then sailed out for her maiden voyage. Oh, name of the ship ? "SIAN-C", of course !

The reception was held at a banquet room overlooking Kanmon Channel (as usual). The "Kagamiwari" ceremony, impressive speeches, elegant shape of SIAN-C which appeared on the "stage", lots of laughter and happy faces... there is much, much more to tell you, but I stop writing here to leave it to the pictures because they say a picture is worth a thousand words. By clicking thumbnails, you can view slideshow of 12 pictures, which are worth some twelve thousand words in my calculation. [2006/12/15]
