Sad to hear she ended this way, I have a better shot of her on here somewhere. The Crescent ships were always a big part of the history of the Thames, right back from the time of spritsail barges.
She sank 17-10-2007 under the Greek flag, named DIAMOND 1, after collision off Thessaloniki.
Her master drowned.
