Grande Benin

Grimaldi's receives its weekly shipment of pizza dough.

 

(No, not really.)

 

The Grande Benin is a Grand Africa class cargo ship born in the Uljanik Shipyards of Croatia and flies the Italian flag. Owned by Grimaldi Lines, it normally sails the shipping routes between North Europe and West Africa (hence its namesake). Here it is seen being towed into the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

 

More vessel info for you boat spotters out there.

 

Bonus: Here's video of the Grande Benin launching back in 2009.
