She was built in Gydnia, Poland by Stocznia im. Komuny Paryskiej as the stern trawling fish factory vessel Saira however prior to her launch she was renamed Sawa. In 1987 she was renamed Yan Yuan No. 2 by the Yantai Marine Fisheries Company and when this picture was added to the archives in December of 2002 she was still listed as operational as such.
