Sold 1968 to Tsavliris Salvage and Towage, Piraeus and renamed NISOS SKIATHOS. Although reported sold for scrap at Perama in 1972 there was another report in 1975 as having been sold to Papageorgiou Towage & Salvage (whoever they may be). Incidentally at some stage, either by Suprema or Tsavliris, her funnel was replaced by an equally tall but more modern streamlined version. Hope this helps, Peter.
