Enotria was a name used by Adriatica Line, but this one is too small for the 1951 ship.

Thanks David,

That info did put me on to this picture of her when she was with Adriatica Line so she is the same one. But stuck again as to her history when she was the KAWTHER which seems to have Middle East origins to the name.

photo from the collection of Bjorn Larsson.

She had a sister MESSAPIA, here at Genoa 1969.

Remember an old Glen Line ship became SAUDI KAWTHER so possibly from there?

She is indeed the former Enotria.
She was renamed Kawther under the Cypriot flag but apparently never used.
she ran aground just outside Pireuas in the last day of 1979, on her way to the shipbreakers. She was declared a CTL and I suppose that she was soon removed and scrapped.

Re Enotria

Hi Aristo,
Im interested to find out what happened to the Enotria...I sailed on her from Venice to Cyprus in 1971 and feel very sad she ran aground in 1979 on her way to the shipbreakers...She obviously wanted a more dignified ending!! Also,what does CTL mean please? Do you know any other details about her please?
Many thanks
rafanna

Messapia

She had a sister MESSAPIA, here at Genoa 1969. Messapia went on to sail as ZAMZAM, but I have no idea of her "final destination." I sailed on her Israel-Italy in January, '67

Enotria and Messapia

I sailed on the Enotria from Venice to Israel in 1970 as a passenger with my Mum, and did the return trip six weeks later on the Messapia.
Had a short romance on the way out, but came back unwell with glandular fever so spent most of my time in my bunk ;(
