The said vessel Thor is still afloat and I cannot understand reason for her to be deleted. Thank's Allan for pointing this out as I had not seen these changes.

According to Shipgaz http://www.shipgaz.com/news/top20/top7_news.php then the story looks like this:

The brand new car carrier Dyvi Pacific has been declared a total loss only a few weeks before its delivery from the Chinese shipbuilder. The vessel hit a rock in the river while manoeuvring just before her sea trials. The ship managed to return to the fitting out quay but sank alongside. The Dvyi Pacific is a 6,500 unit vessel built as the first of three for Fleischer & Co A/S, Oslo, with commercial operation in Høegh Autoliners.
   The 200-metre long vessel is currently lying half submerged in the river. The price tag for a car carrier this size is around USD 80 million.
   The loss of the Dyvi Pacific will not affect the market for car carriers, which at the moment is very subdued due to the economic downturn worldwide. A large number of older units have been sold for recycling, while others are laid up.

Some addition.  She was build as AMAZONIA at EQUITABLE SHIPYARDS 1980.  Renamed RAINBOW HOPE in 1984 and at that time she started sailings between USA and Iceland.  In 1999 she was sold to Transatlantic Lines Shipholdings USA (Atlantsskip Iceland) and renamed GEYSIR.
