This tanker was built in Germany and entered service in December of 1992 as (a) Elbestern. At that time she flew the flag of Germany. In November of 1993 she was transferred to the Canadian subsidiary "Rigel Shipping Canada" along with her sisterships Emsstern now Emerald Star and Jadestern now Jade Star. Elbestern was renamed Diamond Star following the transfer, she was re-flagged Canadian and re-registered out of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
