Silver Wave

Silver Wave at Kato Zakro, Crete

Can anyone identify the vessel please?

This vessel appears to have a chequered history. A local said it was deliberately beached.

I know the location but I'm not sure of the ID

Equasis lists the following subsequent names of MERC ASTRA, built by Schiffswert Oberwinter at Remagen, Germany in 1969:

1973 CATHRINE LONBORG - 76 SKJEVIK - 83 HAMMERVIK - 84 ISI TEAM - 89 SEATEAM - 90 HAJ MOHAMMED (owner: Masri Shipping Agency) - 91 H.J.M.I

when/where was the photograph taken please?

best regards

Hi to you both

The vessel is displaying IMO6812950

Equasis search says

IMO number : 6812950
Name of ship : SILVER WAVE
Call Sign : 5ASF
Gross tonnage : 907
Type of ship : General Cargo Ship
Year of build : 1968
Flag : Non mentionned

So I am confused. Are we still talking about the same vessel.

I took the photograph on 18/05/08

The location is Kato Zakro, Zakro Bay, Eastern Crete.

Apparently the vessel was run aground during the winter 2007/2008 and illegal immigrants from Egypt decamped. An attempt to refloat was unsuccessfully made. I believe the Greek Authorities now have legal possession of the vessel. Some of this information may be faulty through language barriers.

Cheers

Dick

Many thanks to you all. A successful conclusion. I need to work out how to extract more information from Equasis in future.

Cheers
