This ship was built in West Germany and entered service in 1968 as (a) Weser Express. In May of 1984 she was purchased by Lykes Bros. and renamed (b) Charlotte Lykes. She sailed for the remainder of her career under this name and finally arrived at Alang, India on July 14, 1995. Shortly thereafter she was beached and on August 15th crews began dismantling her hull.
