Kinterbury gone to breakers

Atlantic Explorer departed Tilbury on 24/9/2019 to Great Yarmouth where Atlantic Marine (Owners) have a port facility - 25 days later after she destored, she sailed for Tangier in Morocco with a port time of barely 2 hours then onto Aliaga, Turkey arriving on 7/11/2019.

Aliaga is the port that the through deck Cruisers (Invincible / Ark Royal / Illustrious) and a few other warships and RFA's have been broken up recently.

She is currently shown as aground in Aliaga - no longer in service / decommissioned /

The end of 38 years of service to 3 owners

No pictures - the Aliaga breakers seem to keep their activities low key surprising with the many high profile ships they acquire for recycling
