Queen Mary 2
History was made on Sunday 14 March 2010 when the majestic passenger liner Queen Mary 2 sailed into Fremantle Harbour. Spectators watched entranced as the skipper turned the 345 m-long vessel in a 420 m-wide mooring area at the Passenger Terminal. Reaching 62 metres above the water line, the 345 m-long Queen Mary 2 can carry up to 2620 guests and 1253 crew. Tens of thousands turned out to line Fremantle Harbour and wave farewell as she steamed away about 5:30 pm on her third world voyage. Another attraction of the day was the Sail Training Tall Ship Leeuwin II, a 3 masted barquentine, 1850’s style rig.  Construction: Steel hull, teak deck. Dimensions: Overall Length 55 m, Length on deck 40 m, Beam 9 m, Draught depth 3.4 m, Height of main mast 33 m. Displacement: 344 tones. Sails: 16 sails overall, over 810 sq m. Accommodation: 15 crew, 40 trainees. Built at Henderson, Western Australia. Enjoy my photos from a day out at Fremantle.
