A rather interesting subject. Recently a vessel was sighted and duly photographed in the istanbul area.

But when you look to find where the vessel was constructed. Nothing can be found.

Ship in question.  KIOWA.  IMO No 9788095.

Would be interested to hear views on this.

A new ship so probably not in so many databases yet.  I was surprised that the RINA class details linked from Equasis do not show the builder. But anyway:

(mng Misha Shipping Agency & Trade Ltd, Istanbul)(MLT flag, reg Valletta, ON 9788095, c/s 9HA4345, MMSI 249710000)

Thank you. i guessed it was built in Tuzla from the pictures of the vessel taken at anchor in istanbul of the vessel. Just surprised, nothing could be found. Especially since it looks like a copy of the RSD49 types. Neva Leader series modified.
