The 1963-built, 10,074-dwt, 7,234-grt general cargo ship Mergui is seen in this photograph while she was lying at anchor off Singapore on June 12th, 2001.

She was built in Yokosuka, Japan by Uraga Heavy Industries Ltd. for the Burma Five Star Corporation as Mergui. Surprisingly she has operated under the same name for her entire career which has been uncommonly lengthy. When this picture was added to the archives in November of 2002 she was still listed as operational for the Myanmar Five Star Line in the Far East.
