You know, I think I could have parked it that well myself.
Here is a description of what you are seeing:
On the video below you can see how to crash a ferry. The M/F Ostend Spirit also known as the MS Pride of Calais was planned to go for scrap and recycling. Most of the work of the ferry was going back and forth across the English Channel. The time to be scraped had come, the vessel was no longer needed.
Video shows how the M/F Ostend Spirit is arriving in a unique style at the ship breaking yard in Turkey. The vessel will be broken down, piece by piece.
The ferry is intentionally beached because it is easier to demolish a vessel when it is on dry land. This operation has to be normal, but it looks scary. Video below shows how M/F Ostend Spirit was beached between two other wrecks.
