The 1975-built, 30,812-dwt, 17,129-grt bulk carrier Fei Xia Shan is seen in this photograph while she was underway at Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on June 18, 1992. Photograph by Rick Garcia.

She was built in Saiki, Japan by K.K. Usuki Tekkosho as Garden Venus for Eastern Grace Transports Inc. The 1992-3 Lloyds Register listed her owner as Gargen Venus Shipping Ltd., Liberia. In 1987 she was sold and renamed Astra and in 1990 she was purchased by the China Shipping International Intermodal Company Ltd., China and renamed Fei Xia Shan. When this picture was added to the archives in December of 2002 she was still listed as operational as Fei Xia Shan under the management of Guangzhou Maritime Transport (Group) Company, China.
