Although the shipbuilder was a Vietnam shipyards, we would like to
emphasize that, in case of this Vessel’ newbuilding, Owners made very
special arrangements during building the Vessel, as follows:


-      The Vessel’s drawings incl. piece-drawings were

        originally designed by a Japanese designing company

        under a strict the Japanese shipyard’s supervisions.



-      Most of the Vessel’s machineries were made of Japan.



-      During building this Vessel, four technical staffs

        were sent by a reputable shipyard in Japan

(i.e. Nakatani Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.) to this

Vietnamese shipyard, and has always

stashioned there for supervision of building the Vessel

until completion of the Vessel.

        NK surveyors also attended inspections/surveys

of the block-structure/machineries and made severe

surveys item by item from beginning to the completion

under the NK rules, together with the above-mentioned

Japanese stationed staffs.



-      This was a reason why this Vietnam yard has kept the

        contractual delivery time without any delay.

in Vietnam.



-        Therefore, it was believed that the Vessel has been

constructed in Vietnam ‘’as if she was built in Japan’’.



-      The Japanese Charterers has chartered-in

        this Vessel for abt. 8 years and has been

satisfied with the Vessel’s technical performance

for such period, because she had almosr no off-hire

until now, due to technical reasons, except

small one.
