Great shot. Congratulations.

The vessel -a long with her sister - had been ordered by the Eletson Maritime, Piraeus, Greece. Eletson, having been established in 1970, progressed rapidly by acquiring elder vintage tankers, and in 1974 took the big step: ordered a pair of newbuildings in Naksov,Denmark. However during the construction of the vessels the tanker markets collapsed in 1976 and Eletson refused to take delivery on the grounds of technical breaches of the shipbuilding contracts. The vessels finally presented for delivery by the yard to Eletson, bearing their original names PIRAEUS SEA and PIRAEUS SKY. Eletson never showed up to take delivery, and ships kept by the yard. For the history, Eletson bought lots of older cheap s/h tankers at the same time, very cheap due to depressed market. Only ten years after they (Eletson) placed n/b again, at Kanda in Japan, for 5 x 30k dwt mollases tankers (which a year after delivery from the yard, in 1988, the Soviets bought them at a ballistic price, almost tripple as much as Eletson had spent to build them).
