Old Reefers sold for scrap
« on: August 15, 2008, 06:16:24 PM »
Hi all,

hard times for shiplovers with a heart on old reefer vessels. The following vessels were sold for breaking:

Akebono Reefer, Argenta, Blue Stream, Dean, Eisha, Morillo, Nordic Cape, Nordic Bay, Nordic Ice, Pietari Dream, Pietari Flame, Pietari Frost, Royal Cooler, Royal Bay, Royal Reefer and Torvill. Actually the SNOW FLOWER is on the way from Manila via Singapore to Alang and I think many others of these good old lady`s will follow soon  

I have posted a "Tribute to NORDIC STAR & NORDIC CAPE" -Video on youtube: http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=436w_Q5aLDE

Greetings from Hamburg / GER

Jan L.
