Genoa 1 – the VUB

This is the Very Ugly Boat (VUB) which awaits tourists on the waterfront in Genoa. It may be ugly, but it is one of the few visible reminder’s of the city’s seafaring history. According to Wiki: “The Neptune is a ship replica of a 17th-century Spanish galleon. The ship was built in 1985 for Roman Polanski’s film Pirates, where she portrayed the Spanish ship of the same name”.
