A full-rigged ship that the Vietnam Navy contracted to buy from Poland arrived at a port in Nha Trang on Wednesday, VnExpress reported.
A hand-over ceremony was held at the port where the Vietnam Naval Academy is located.
The training vessel is named after Le Quy Don (1726-1784), a famous Vietnamese poet, philosopher and encyclopedist in the 18th century.
The ship was built by Polish shipyard Marine Projects Ltd. under a contract signed with the Vietnam Naval Academy in July 2014. The contract includes the training of the Vietnamese crew.
The ship was launched last June. It arrived in Vietnam after a 125-day voyage with a mixed Polish and Vietnamese crew onboard.
It will be officially commissioned at the academy after a flag ceremony in March.
