Yes, Bob, I think you can, which makes DDGHansa's shot an exceptionally rare one.
Bob Scott on Oct 09, 2017 14:53 (11 months ago)
I think, then, that we can safely assume that she never sailed as ANTONIOS - except to the breakers' yard

Bob, I suddenly remembered that i have some Shipping Indexes from the eighties, and the one I have from december 1985 says that she was still waiting to be renamed Antonios, and that she had arrived in 1981 for Lay-up at Piraeus.

ANTONIOS was owned by George and Andreas Kyrtatas (Canopus Maritime, Piraeus, greece). Owning company was Astronaftis Cia Naviera S.A.

I have no record of what she did between 1984 and 1986, when she went to breakers
pieter melissen on Oct 09, 2017 06:40 (11 months ago)
so she nver traded as Antonios.

Yes, Allan. They were white originally but many changed hull colours in later years

nice one Bob, I thought these Onassis jobs had white hulls.
