After a morning of rain, the clouds drifted apart in the early afternoon and all guests were welcomed at Peters Shipyards with beautifull weather. The christening ceremony of the sixt and last Sole type vessel was performed by Diana Juhl. Diana is the wife of Lars Juhl, former MD of World Wide Chartering Services of Intermarine and actively involved in creating the Sole type vessel several years ago. After the christening ceremony, the Industrial Merchant slided smoothly sideways into the IJssel river and all guests could a enjoy a nice buffet with good friends and good laughs. All in all, a great day!
