The 1956-built, 1,174-grt, passenger and general cargo ship Nonia is seen in this photograph while she was lying at Montreal, Quebec, Canada on August 18th, 1981.

She was built in Aberdeen, Scotland at the Hall, Russel & Company Ltd., drydock for the Ministry of Transport, Canada as Nonia. In 1982 she was sold to Perisco Transports Finances Inc., Canada and her name was unchanged. On March 10th, 1984 shile she was on a voyage from Sydney, Nova Scotia to the Cayman Islands she suffered serious engine trouble and was rendered powerless several hundred miles south of Nova Scotia. She was later towed to New York harbour where it was determined that the damage was beyond economical repair. She was subsequently declared a constructive total loss and laid up.

Soon thereafter though she was resold Maressa Shipping Co. Ltd. of the Cayman Islands then soon after sold again in 1986 to Trans Maritima Chiriqui S.A., Panama and through both sales her name was unchanged.
