8709468 = yard number 327 / 1988 /4783 gross . 8906004 = yard number 339 / 1989 /4573 gross became limestone carrier. Sizes different.

Interesting, two ships with the same name, built by the same yard in a span of two years. Marine Traffic reports 8709468 to be in China since 2018, while the other one is out of range. The first one has a lot of pictures on Marine Traffic by a certain V. Tonic, so I assume that Lappino will be in the best position to say what is what. I have not seen any shot of the second ship.

Thank you for your comments. It may well be the "Young Jin" that Pieter mentioned.
Bernd, the vessel with the IMO number you gave is a different "Young Jin", her hawse pipes are not the same.

Young Jin is an 8000 dwt cement carrier, built in 1988 by Shin-A. Imo number is 8906004. Not yet reported as scrapped or deleted. Could well be this ship.
