The ship is only six years old.
Bailiff Roger Dujardin believes this is a unique opportunity: "The ship's in excellent condition. I've never had to auction a vessel like this before and I think it's never happened before that such a recent and large vessel is sold at a public auction."
The ship should fetch up to 25 million euros. Bidders get a first opportunity today, but will be able to increase their offer at a later stage.
