Anthi Marina

IMO : 7820473

Build : 1979 by Schichau Unterwesser AG, Bremerhaven, Germany, nr 2279 as Spirit of Free Enterprise

A real ugly Duckling this one:  The Anthi Marina was already a bit strange looking when she was built in 1979 and in the mean time she has changed names & owners multiple times. One of them has really altered her: widened the hull, changed the bow, added superstructure parts and then some more. All those modifications didn’t do her any good….At all!!

Here she is in her former & unspoiled “Glory”

And she came in white as well: not really a unspoiled maiden of the sea!

Btw: she is one of two sisterships of the infamous “Herald of Free Enterprise”, the ferry that capsized just outside the port of Zeebrugge on the 6th of march 1987 resulting in the loss of 193 lives.
