Well according to David Linkes 2006 book she is the ex- Shetland Challenger LK143

Built 1989 Tomrefjord Norway by Langsten's as Shetland Challenger , sold and renamed Klara Birting then sold to Marr's and renamed Marbella.

Her bow and part of the supertructure had to be totally rebuild after she collided with the oil rig , extensive damage and if she had been any older its likely she would have been scrapped not repaired.

The Shetland Challenger was built by Langstein in 1987 .
When ordered she was intended for Scalloping but as this fishery collapsed during her building it was decided to lengthening her and put more freezers in her and go to Canada to fish cod wether she went ore not i am not sure but i think she was there for a short time but she became a Bank problem and was finally sold to Shetland
I think she fished in Canada under the name Klara Birting.

She went one trip to Greenland to fish for shrimps with little luck and her stay in Shetland was very short. Skipper on her was well known Hull skipper Dickie Taylor.

Sold to Norway in 1990 and R/N Norwester
Sold in --------- 1991 and R/N Klara Birthing Went to New Zealand to fish.
---------------- 1993-------- Longva 2
Sold to England in 1996 and R/N Marbella
There is a time gap as she is built in 1987 and delivered in 1989???????
