Hi Sydney

I saw her when I was up in Buckie a couple of weeks ago and was quite interested to find out a little bit about her former life. She is quite a large vessel for tourist type tours and with an IMO and Luxembourg Registry I thought there must be more of a story to her.
Its amazing what information you can find on the Internet :lol:
