Fate of the tug ATLANTIC RESCUER/ former BALTIC from Bugsier

Hello,

Due to the b/m datas from the hp www.equasis.org it seems that the tug does not exist any longer:

IMO number :6926048
Name of ship :ATLANTIC RESCUER
Call Sign :C4DV
Gross tonnage :662
Type of ship :Tug
Year of build :1969
Flag :Cyprus
Status of ship: Dead
Last update :2009-02-23

Does somebody knows more about it (like where scrapped/beached or sank)?

The last information I have, is that the vsl was spotted completely abandoned anchored off the Namibian coast/Walvis Bay in 2005:

I'm almost sure I saw her converted to a private yacht and lying alongside at Valetta in 2005. If it wasn't her it was a sister ship.

On Flickr exists a picture of the port, where the vsl. can be seen, dated 2009-05-06:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/banthafood/3539369764/

So it seems the vsl. still exists ….

On google earth the vsl. can be found as well:
2256’ 31.85’’ S
1430’12.12’’ E

Has anyone other pictures of the ATLANTIC RESCUER (IMO 6926048) ?

Regards from Hamburg

How does she look ? Any idea if there were mechanical problems aboard ? I know the Baltic Rescuer (Seefalke) was abandoned in Trinidad as she had crankshaft problems on one main engine and she sank there. Did you post any pictures ?
