Zoe [ex Regent Sky / Stena Baltica] [GR] IMO 7907685 Passenger vessel built 1979 / 2010 - 5,000 t

Ms Stena Baltica was the last one of the four ferries ordered by Stena Line, Gothenburg in 1979. In 1986 the order for the last one was cancelled due to problems with the shipyard. In 1989 the hull was sold to A. Lelakis (owner of Regency Cruises), Piraeus and was towed to Avlis Shipyards, Perama, Greece (also owned by Lelakis). He wanted to convert it into a cruise ship at an estimated cost of $200 million. At some point the vessel was lengthened by over 50 metres at Eleusis Shipyards, Eleusis, Greece, when over 7.000 tonnes of steel was installed. Later the ship was towed to Avlis Shipyards at Chalkis, Greece. Regency Cruises went bankrupt in 1995 and in 1996, when the ship was about 60% complete, she was taken over by the Bank of Greece. In 1999 sold to Sea Nomad Maritime, Piraeus. In January 2001 all works halted for completing the construction. In June 2004 sold to unknown buyers and on the 16th of June 2004 arrived in tow at Ambelakia. Several auctions have been held in order to sell her but they have failed and now she is on route for demolition.

Mv Wisdom moves from one beach to another

Saturday the 1st July 2011 saw the cargo ship Mv Wisdom finally being pulled off the beach at Juhu, and then head towards Alang.

The vessel, which was purchased by a consortium of Indian shipbreakers in Singapore, hired the services of Smit, a 175 year-old international maritime company with offices in Porbandar, Gujarat and Mumbai, for the salvage operation.

After two failed attempts to dislodge the vessel, helicopters had been dropping ropes and other salvage equipment on MV Wisdom for the last couple of days in order to make good use of the high tide on Saturday.

Starting early on Saturday, a team of 30 men employed by GR Engineers, pumped out 500 tonnes of water ingress from the ship's tanks and pumped in compressed air for nearly two hours, to enhance buoyancy of the ship.

Heavy machinery was used to loosen the sand in and around Wisdom Three tugs, hired from a Porbandar-based Vishavakarma Shipping, were put in to action at noon and at 1.11 pm, they managed to pull the vessel into deeper waters.

According to a senior level source in the Directorate General Shipping, the vessel will be kept in the outer waters to the north west of Juhu beach, till the time all the clearances from the coast guard and the government maritime institutions are obtained. It will then be tugged to Alang in Gujarat.

"The major hurdle has been crossed, as no one wanted the vessel to be stranded for another day on the beach," the source added.
