All incorrect I'm afraid. Correct IMO 7700922 and she was built in 1977 as Diligence and as can be guessed by the profile from the Imabari yard. She was renamed Lupinus in 1978 and Songhua Career in 1980 and when Prompt Shipping began their demise was sold to the Koreans and renamed May Star in 1983. She was on her only visit to Napier (not Newcastle) as depicted in photo, and continued operting for Cho yang until 1997. She was then sold to Greeks and renamed Agia Doxa and in 2002 renamed Sunrise Ocean, as which she still sails and the last report I have is sailing Bandar Abbas on 23.9.06.

9291353 is the IMO number of the ship presently named 'May Star' that was built, as you say, in 2003.

However, I rather think your photo is of the previous ship of this name that was built in 1994 - her IMO number is 9103166 and is now the 'Maria C'.

[Otherwise, your photo cannot have been taken on the date stated.]
