On a nice summer Saturday in Skagen the newbuilding was christened S 264 Astrid and handed over to Astrid Fiskeri A/S. All visitors had a fine tour onboard, and Karstensens Skibsvaerft A/S served beer and sausages as per the usual tradition.
In the evening, the shipyard hosted a nice dinner at the Color Hotel in Skagen. We certainly had a fine evening. Next morning the newbuilding sailed to the Swedish homeport west of Gothenburg for presentation to a large number of visitors.
