Alba Varden is the name of the cargo ship Arjen Rudd and Pieter Vorstedt used to smuggle krugerrands from Africa to Los Angeles and carry their criminal operation under the guise of diplomats in the United States.
It is physically shown while Riggs and Murtaugh investigate the docks and locate the ship and a container filled with money. As they see how much is actually inside the bags, they are subsequently locked inside the container by the diplomats and lifted up high above the ground. However, Riggs has a plan to escape out of the container and they hot-wire the car inside as it speeds open through the door and explodes. Most of the money the diplomats laundered is also destroyed in the process.
A shootout begins and the battle gets really bloody inside the Alba Varden.
- Before they discovered the identity of the ship, Riggs and Murtaugh thought the Alba Varden was a woman.
