Short History of vessel: ‘Aloata’ has never been chartered, she has been well maintained in the past and only had four owners.

Vessel was a shore of Delta Marina, New Harbour, Kyrene, North Cyprus. She needed a lot of work and unfortunately North Cyprus was not furbish for such works (replacing mizzen i.e.) and Mr and Mrs Stoker felt they are too old to deal with this work consisting sailing her to Turkey which was closest place to get all the job done.
