Equasis lists present owners as being Tip Top Invest Ltd, which doesn't really mean anything.

Thank You for your answer. :-)

She was sold to a Chinese company, which I have no information on. It might be of interest her sister ship was the ex Iron Newcastle which is now the Lowlands Yarra. Her replacement is the chartered Lowlands Prosperity. I'm looking foreward to her arrival at Port Kembla. Thanks for your comment.-PK

Nice photo. Light is great and crisp details.

Final time? Was she sold or scrapped?
