Allan: Relic under construction?
Allan RO on Feb 23, 2017 23:27 (3 years ago)
is this really 'ship under construction, or perhaps more realistically it should be a 'wreck or relic'

The IMO number for the Brazilian-built DOCEVENUS is 8026866. (I think that all the images on site currently under IMO 9040900 are of this vessel.)

The intended PEARL CONSTANTA from Mangalia is IMO 9040900. Is there any evidence that this hull was taken to Greece?

This is indeed the hull of the Docevenus, launched by Verolme Brasil in 1983. Her sister Docelua (yard number 312) is listed by miramar as having been completed in Perama in 2008 as Kyveli. This ships were much smaller than a panamax, and it shows in the pictures.

You can see the photo with the name DOCEVENUS written on her at :

By the way the hulk is still laid up at Eleusis.

I don't know if the ship is currently named PEARL CONSTANTA. However in a photo taken in the mid 90s - she was already laid up in Eleusis Bay - the name DOCEVENUS was clearly visible on her stern. The homeport of Rio de Janeiro was also written below the name. At that time she was flying the German flag and she was tied up next to the incomplete DOCELUA - now completed as KYVELI.
Personally I think there is a mix up between two incomplete hulls - one built at Mangalia (ex-MANGALIA 2 MAI 856, ex-BLEJOI) and this one at Eleusis (ex-DOCEVENUS).

Phil English on Feb 17, 2011 20:45 (9 years ago)
Launched in 1988 and likely will never be completed. Next stop will probably be the demolition yard.

Yes Krispen, I think that You are right. This hull really looks like PEARL CONSTANTA.
