Aquarama – scrapped

According to the St. Catharines Standard, the Aquarama/Marine Star was scrapped, starting on September 16 last year.

The former passenger and auto ferry Aquarama was sold for scrap and towed to Aliaga, Turkey, last summer. The ship had been idle since 1962.

The deep-sea tug Aetos Z. took the vessel across the Atlantic and down the Mediterranean to Aliaga, Turkey, arriving at the scrapyard on Sept. 16, 2007. It is shown, with scrapping underway, last November, thanks to a photo by Selim San.

The article references a photo that’s not available online. My searches for one have also come up empty. If anyone finds one, please leave a comment and let me know.
