Photo Category: General cargo ships built 1980-1989 (Over 3000gt)
Tilbury, upriver 18/9/82

This is one of the Ocean Group's 'M' class multi-purpose cargo liners. Built Scott's S.B. 4/1980 as MARON.

11/1981 renamed Studland Bay for charter to OCL

1987 sold to Al-Mubarak (Shipping & Trading Co. and then to Omega Ltd, both of Bermuda, renamed Baltic Adventurer.

Since then she has borne various names, mostly for charter. However, in the latter part of her career she was owned by the British shipowner Cenargo Ltd. Indeed, it was as Cenargo's Merchant Patriot that on 30th December 1997 her engine room flooded and she was abandoned off the Bahamas. She was towed into Freeport and then to Mexico where she was broken up.

Thanks to for the detailed history and to Gareth for giving me the lead I needed to find it :-)
