|Interesting vessel this one...
On the repair lanes at AstiCan Ship Repair Yard, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, today, 09/12/2010.
Built in 1985 (Christened at Tacoma on 20/07/1985) by Tacoma Boat, Tacoma, Washington, U.S.A (434) and one of the last vessels to be built prior to the builders demise.
The hull was commenced as early as 1984 and intended as an at-sea incinerator vessel, launched as "Apollo Two" but not completed.
When the builder filed for Chapter 11 protection in 1985 the hull was, I believe, laid up.
Subsequently sold much later( maybe as late as 1997?) and completed by Mjellem & Karlsen, Bergen, Norway.
Again, believed, she was completed as the stern trawler "Atlantic Star", registered at Portland, Maine, U.S.A.
Sold in 1999 and renamed "Annelies Ilena".
Sold to Lithuanian owners in 2006 & renamed "Margiris".
