1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: ships sold for scrap on: December 07, 2018, 04:16:10 pm
Does anyone know the whereabouts of the elderly Varun LPG tanker MAHARSHI DATTATREYA (1983, IMO 8128975)? Appears to be still in operation, but no update on AIS since 28/10/'17.

MAHARSHI DATTATREYA is lying abandoned off Dubai in poor condition after the failure of owner Varun Shipping. She was expected to be an auction candidate earlier this year but nothing happened. it's believed that there are numerous legal hurdles to overcome before she can be sold.

The vessel has a garage area at the aft end, above the engine room for the carriage of road tankers which can be driven on and off via the ramp. The vessel operates to Greek islands where infrastructure is such that this approach is worthwhile. A small number of other Greek coastal tankers are similarly configured.

I hope this helps.

Hi Peter,

My company was involved in the sale of this ship, so Iím pretty confident that she is not going for scrap.She has been laid up for some time with expired certificates and that is the reason she cannot sail under her own power.

Hi Peter,

Are you sure she's going for scrap? She was sold at auction on 19/10/2018 to Micoperi SRL for further trading.

Ben Woollacott has been berthed at Kiel since Monday afternoon, with no further destination showing. I am sceptical that the new ferries have the necessary certificates and crew accommodation to cross the North Sea under their own power. However - I could still be proved wrong.

I must have known something, Vlad, as I wasn't too far wrong :-)

My shipspotting is largely confined to cruises these days. Most of my time I sit here in an office of a large shipping services company, researching and compiling maritime data, some of which (in an indirect way) is provided by class surveyors!

Vlad,

Many thanks for your wonderful photos from Japan. I had always assumed that your shipspotting was a by-product of business trips made to Japan and Korea where you are perhaps a class surveyor or newbuilding supervisor. Seems I am wrong on that score!

Anyway, as well as being good photos, they are tremendously informative and help no end in my very real business of tying up ship names to hull numbers and IMO numbers. Keep up the fanstastic work!

I cannot open full screen images in either Chrome or IE, and I am logged in. Strange.

Your choice.. you delete them

PS - I'm administrator in name only. I no longer undertake admin on this site and haven't done for some considerable time.

If someone with a large collection of photos on Shipspotting deletes them all, let them. They can do as they please. However, they should automatically be banned for life. Why should they get access to other members' photos, when theirs cannot be accessed any longer?

Gas Al Mutlaa IMO 9005053 is also not sold for scrap. She was sold to Chinese trading buyers (believed Kunlun Shipping, but TBC) and renamed Sea Gloria. Note she's a VLGC, not a VLCC

Adriatic Energy IMO 8110203 has not been sold for scrap. It was misreported by a broker and Tradewinds and other have followed suit.

Marek,

Your photos are indeed very good from a photography perspective but this site has always focussed on ships first and foremost, and photography second. Hence we have a set of site standards which basically allows ship enthusiasts to see what a particular ship looks like, rather than to see what a bit of it looks like. Within that, there are a set of basic composition and clarity rules to weed out shots of substandard quality.
