She was built in Haugesund, Norway by Brodrene Lothe A/S for Etela-Suomen Laiva as Pasila. In 1993 she was purchased by B&N, Bylock & Nordsjofrakt AB, Norway and renamed Nordon. In April of 1999 she was renamed Neva Trader by B&N and when this picture was added to the archives in September of 2002 she was still operational as such
