Hi Stefan,
Her life were indead too short but at the end of her life she was in a very bad shape. I think she has a lot of sisters. Best regards

Hi Pascal,
thank you for these two rare pics at Mauritius. I have seen her at Hamburg in january 1984. This attractive ship had a much too short life, I think.

This is rigth and the delivery took place in Dunkirk (France). Here she is spotted loading sugar in Port Louis (Mauritius) her last cargo under Malagazy flag, loaded and carried out to London. New owner visited her in London and after sugar was off loaded she sailed to Dunkirk and was delivered to Blue Heron Shipping out there few weeks after.
