The above vessel was built in Richmond BC Canada at
the "Vito Steel Boat and Barge Construction" shipyard in
1982, for the Husky Oil Company. We were
commissioned to build a 1:100 scale model of the "Bonavista
Bay" (shown left). As our company was also
based in Richmond BC, at that time, we followed it's
progress all through it's outfitting
stage, at Vito's yard, through to it's completion.
In 1987 it was sold to the Maersk Organization and renamed
the "Maersk Bonavista" shown above.
2007, it was resold, and renamed, the "Drive
Bonavista" and registered under the Bahamas Flag.
