She was built in Yugoslavia at Uljanik Brodogradiliste and sailed under the name Nikolay Gogol until early in 1996 for the Black Sea Shipping Company of Russia before being sold and renamed Polaris II. by Anselm Shipping Ltd. It is not known whether she ever traded under this name however if she did it would not have been for very long since she was sold for scrapping in India during June of that year for a reported $1.3 million (US).
