Clipper Faith Becomes Island Mariner at Dublin

Photographs  Tony Brennan 2013

CLIPPER FAITH (19,354grt), formerly operated by Sea Management and owned by Afternoon Maritime Corporation of Essex, UK, seen being renamed ISLAND MARINER at Dublin Port. The ship has been in the news recently having been detained on March 13 following mortgagee's  claims and those of other creditors including the crew who were owed $320,000 in unpaid wages.

The mainly Russian and Ukrainian seafarers had not been paid since late 2012. The ship was put up for sale by auction by order of the Admiralty Marshall. The ship was sold for 4.8m at an auction held at the Clarion Hotel.  Proceeds from the sale will be paid to creditors including Dublin Port Company and the mortgagee's Amsterdam Trade Bank. The crew had been paid off the previous month and returned home following intervention of the International Transport Workers' Federation. She is now owned by Greek interests.
