ADDITIONAL INFORMATION - This section is open for all viewers to contribute any information about this ship that is known such as former owners, managers, charterers, accidents, conversions, drydockings, cargoes, voyages, sightings or ports of call etc..


** This ship would seem to have been removed from service sometime during the 1980s. Perhaps she was used as a storage barge somewhere ??
** Very little is known about this ship other than she was scrapped as Anton Ivanov. There was not record of her in Lloyds registers under that name past the late 1980s.. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated..
