Lovely crisp shot Ken. Ian is correct that she and her sisters have finally been sold to U.K. based Lomar (at a bit of a loss) after being pushed around the market since last summer. Hopefully will be arriving in new colours and name soon.
Best Regards

Nice catch in the sunshine Ken still a bit cold though, read somewhere the Hellespont Creation and her two sisters the Hellespont Credo & Hellespont Chivalry have been sold en-bloc for $43 million to overseas buyers may see them around in new colours sometime, good shipspotting and keep warm!!!
