There is no Alaskan fishing ship quite like Northern Leader. Towing an astonishingly long 50-mile fishing line with 75,000 hooks, she reels in some of the best cod, pollock, and skate on the planet while powering through the unforgiving Bering Sea. Northern Leader works year-round and is built for high winds and cold temperatures, and she better be. Her latest excursion puts her and her crew right into the path of a hurricane, with 70 MPH winds and 30-foot swells, including one massive wave that may spell disaster for one of the deckhands.
From exotic sports cars to helicopters to locomotives, Tonsberg can carry anything on wheels. She's one of the largest roll-on/roll-off vessels ever constructed, a 17-story warehouse on the waves. Follow her on her latest delivery route, a four-port, 15-day mission that will take her across the Atlantic Ocean. With a giant payload of 3,000 cars, a giant crane, excavators, and even yachts, Tonsberg must work her way through tight channels, shallow waters, and even a tropical storm, delivering everything on time, and without a scratch.
When it comes to offshore construction projects, nothing matches Norway's North Sea Giant. Her specialty is installing massive components for oil and gas facilities on the ocean floor, aided by a specialized crane system. She will put that crane, and every one of her advanced technologies, to the test on her next mission: a factory build 984 feet below the surface of the Norwegian Sea. It's a project the world has never seen before, billions of dollars are on the line, and everyone's counting on North Sea Giant to get it done.
