The 1970-built, 15,895-dwt, 10,708-grt general cargo vessel Nils Amelon is seen in this photograph while she was underway during November of 1975. The location is unknown.

She was built in Japan at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd and sailed as Nils Amelon until 1975 when she was sold and renamed Ocean Sailor. In 1977 she was sold to the Shanghai Ocean Shipping Company and renamed Hong Gu Cheng and when this picture was added to the archives she was still listed as operational as such.
