IMO 5204388 Prinses Beatrix of Gasselternijveer

This ship was built in Groningen 1938 just before the war. During the war she was captured by the Germans and in 1945 bombed by the Russian. After repairing she was taken over by Danish people ang they gave her the name "Maj".

In 1952 she was sold to Sweden with the same name. The new owner was Knut Hermansson in Skärhamn and his partners. She stayed there for 10 years and was taken over by Italians in Neapel. She got the new name "Lavinia Attanasio".

1965 she came to Pireaus Greece and was named "Panagia". Greek owners were E Leontaras and then HD Perdicaras & Co and finaly John Hadjimarkos & Co. All the time in Pireaus till 1991 I have been told. When she was in Sweden she had gross 395, net 133 and TDW 400 in 1958.

My problem is that I dont know what happened to her after Greece. I can imagine that she was scrapped in Greece but I dont know. Can anybody help?
