She was built in Haugesund, Norway by Haugesund M/V A/S for the Finland Steamship Company and she entered service as Patria. In the time since her construction she has sailed as Patria (88), Ukraina (90) and Nomadic Patria. When this picture was added to the archives in November of 2002 she was still operational as such for Nomadic Management, Norway.
