MS Zephyr's launch and naming ceremony at Larsnes.

Many people had traveled to Larsnes to see the new Zephyr's naming ceremony, the 24th of August 2019.

112 guests from Shetland came across the North Sea to attend the launch and naming ceremony. That means that 10% of the Shetland Island's inhabitants were in Larsnes this weekend. In addition to yard employees, other guests and local people, the ship was a bit crowded when everybody went on board to take a closer look at this beautiful vessel.

Godmother Kathleen Grace Irvine, the wife of shipowner Allister Irvine, brake the champagne bottle at her first try and wished for the ship and the crew good fishing in the future. We join the series and wish them good luck!
