in late 1960's while on Baltic Exchange as chartering broker for British phosphate commissioners[bpc] i concluded 2 year time charter with owners J.Carras for their newbuilding bulkcarrier Capetan Psarros.Delivery was sailing builders yard japan after completion trials thereafter she was carrying bulk phosrock from nauru island/christmas island to Aust/NZ. Can anyone give me her subsequent history[ i left bpc in 1969 so lost contact with her] At the time the fixture of this vsl was notable since bpc had not previously taken a greek flag b/c on timecharter.

Terry, I am sure someone will come up with a quicker and better response, but in case they don't, I will contact the present JC Carras office and ask if they have any information on her.

Terry,

Capetan Psarros was trading througout the 1970s and into the 1980s but arrived Chalkis 29/8/82 for layup. She was still there in April 1984, but the trail goes cold from then on. I have more extensive resources at work, so should hopefully be able to let you know more tomorrow.

Unfortunately records here do not go back quite far enough to get a detailed history. However, I can confirm that she was scrapped sometime in the late 80s or early 90s as the "Alexander Junior".

Hopefully someone else will be able to fill in the gaps - her IMO number is 6621284.

capetan psarros

Greetings Ruud, Thamesphil,Tonga
Thank you gentlemen for your responses to my query.The vessel's d.w. was a major advance for BPC. When i joined them in1956,the common cargo size was around 9000 then by late 1950's/early 1960's the first single deckers started to appear eg jebsens rederi "Brimnes" approx 15000 cargo. Again many thanks
