Pictured in the Port of Gibraltar 21/02/07 is the MY Natalia (ex-Straits 1?). She used to be operated by Straits Towing until they folded and has been moved round the port on to different berths over the years but has spent most of her recent time moored alongside the detached mole. She now has been taken to the port where she is awaiting a surveyors report, plans at one stage were in hand to convert her in to a yacht.
