Former Black Watch/Jupiter and Former St. George sold for scrap

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In separate developments, two well-known ships have this week been reported sold for scrap.

In the first report, the ferry CROWN has been sold 'as is' Dubai for eventual resale to Indian breakers. The CROWN is probably best known as Fred Olsen's BLACK WATCH and Bergen Lines' JUPITER. Built 1966 at Flender Werft, she spent the Summer months operating as the JUPITER between Newcastle and Bergen and in Winter switched to Olsen's Canary Islands- London service as BLACK WATCH. After a spell with Greek owners as CROWN M, she has latterly spent time in Dubai as a floating accommodation centre for construction workers, alongside a former Japanese ferry which has been sold for scrap at the same time.

In the second report, the former British Railways / Sealink Ferry ST. GEORGE has been sold 'as is' Bahamas for onward resale to Indian breakers. She is currently named TEXAS TREASURE and has most recently been in service as an offshore casino.
