Hello fellow ship enthusiasts and experts,

I seek to acquire items from the late National Geographic Endeavour (IMO 6611863.)
I followed this particular ship around for a while and it was one of my ambitions to sail aboard her. Unfortunately, I found last year that she had been sent to the breakers  Cry. From what little information I have scrounged from the depths, she was sent to Nantong Shipbreaking Yard, in Jiangsu Province of China for scrapping in March 2017. I assume this has already been carried out but I expect there may be some items left from her.

So would anyone here happen to have a contact for them? Preferably email, as my Mandarin is very poor.
Or, if anyone here would happen to know where I can find items specific from this vessel?

Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

According to my information this vessel was demolished at Guayaquil, Ecuador and not in China. See her last position on Marinetraffic. This is a known demolition area and can be seen on Google Earth

Do you know the name of the yard by any chance?

Hi,

The N G E is visible on Google Earth :
- on scene dated 08 Jun 2017 in position 02°11'32"S & 079°50'25"W, in front of the scrapyard of the steel mill ADELCA (Duran).
- on scene dated 13 Oct 2017 in position 02°11'16"S & 079°50'59"W, still intact
- on the next scene Oct 2018, she had disappeared (cut).

Googling with 'Adelca Duran' you will find some mails. Hope that will help you.

Regards,
Yvon
