In 1959 she was sold to J.E.Manne & Co (information source: Miramar) and renamed CETUS, passing in 1962 to the Polish Steamship Company of Szczecin, who renamed her GRODZIEC.
In 1975 she was sold to Flandermar and renamed DALIA.A
In 1982 she was transferred within Flandermar and renamed IONIAN BREEZE.

THIS VESSEL WAS OF PARTICULAR PERSONAL INTEREST AS I HAD BEEN INVITED ON BOARD WHEN LYING ALONGSIDE KIEL NORDHAFEN IN 1975 DURING HER LAST DAYS AS "GRODZIEC"
