Something there is about a wreck ... that makes for a great hotel. A truly evocative image.

Looks like it was a Russian ship. Maybe left over from the end of the Soviet era in 1991?

Hi Purdey thanks for the vist. Yes in fact it was a Russion ship. It came to Walvisbay around 2006 but was in very poor state of repair even when it arrived there!
