This 50‑m ERRV (emergency response and rescue vessel) is currently under construction at Nanjing East Star Shipyard.

VOS Famous is the fourth in a ten-vessel newbuilding programme, with six 50-m ERRVs being built at Nanjing and four 60-m vessels under construction at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, also in China. All these vessels have a revolutionary, wave-piercing bow shape that has been specially designed for Vroon.
