Rhea: 26-year old, Panamanian-flagged, refloated
A salvage team finally managed to refloat the cargo ship that ran aground and settled in shallow water on the Rinconcillo Beach after dragging anchor in strong winds near the city of Algeciras, Spain. A line broke in the first high-tide attempt to float the ship, and operations were put on pause as the tide lowered. The 26-year old ship had stopped at an anchorage off the port to take on water and was empty at the time of the incident.
Panamanian-flagged Rhea is managed by Athens-based Blue Ocean Maritime and owned by Aliente Trading, which shares the same address.
