|Helsinki South Harbour on November 18, 2004. IMO 8406731. In February 2006 she was sold to Louis Public Co, Limassol and in March was renamed SEA DIAMOND. Moved from the Finnish registry to Cypriot.
On April 5, 2007 she ran into a reef off the island of Santorini, Greece and got a massive tear in her hull. It was told that she would've been towed to shallow waters to prevent sinking but in the morning of April 6 at 06.55 local time she capsized and sank in 135-140 metres of water. All passengers & crew evacuated but later reports told that a father and his daughter had gone missing.
