This photograph of LIBERATOR COLOCOTRONIS was taken passing Hoek van Holland inbound for Rotterdam from Takoradi shortly after dawn on a dull 27th July 1973.
She subsequently arrived at Hamburg on 30th July 1973 and was there sold to other Greek owners who renamed her ATHEN PROGRESS.
Berthing at Port Harcourt on 16th September 1975 with a cargo of cement loaded at Rostock, on sailing on 2nd October ATHEN PROGRESS suffered engine damage and was towed to Ferrol by the tug KORAL, arriving on 10th December. Her next move was to the breaker's yard.

many thanks Manfred - She is one of my favourite ships, particularly memorable when seen arriving at BrunsbŁttel as ATHEN PROGRESS at dawn on 21st June 1975.

great shot of this Deutsche Werft classic.
Just a tiny correction, she was ex BURG SPARRENBERG.
Best wishes, Manfred
