Welcome to our fifth volume in the series looking at the ships serving the port of Southampton and its approach. In this volume filmed between 2012 and 2016, we look as always at everything from tugs to the largest cruise ships. We also see tankers at the oil jetties of Fawley and Hamble. Ships are seen at their berths and underway. We film from the shore and from the water. An unusual event captured in this film was the stranding and near capsizing of the car carrier Hoegh Osaka on mudbanks at the entrance to Southampton Water. The maiden voyage of P&Os cruise ship Britannia is also seen.
There is no commentary but an information sheet guides you through. Enjoy it all as if you were there.
