also has dynamic positioning abilities, and is powered
by six diesel generators and propelled by Azipod
MS Nieuw Amsterdam model features:
- Scratch built
hull construction (very important), weighing less than 15 lbs
(A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs
which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art
- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many
individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not
several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one
- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to
the hollow structures.
