Not often nowadays do you get to photograph two Sunderland built ships together,and as a bonus to see what a rebuild can do to alter the profile of the original design.The NIKOLAOS Ex Superflex Alfa as built and the PANTOKRATOR Ex Superflex Foxtrot as rebuilt,taken at Corfu 21.05.12.

So much for the original owner's slanderous allegation that the ships were sub-standard - quarter of a century and counting!

Still in service according to Equasis.

ALFA as NIKOLAOS for Ionion Lines since 2007 and FOXTROT as PANTOKRATOR since 1994. Current owner of FOXTROT is Panca Merak Samudera PT, Surabaya, Indonesia and she is listed as operating in the Makassar Strait area.

ALFA's next survey is 12/02/2021 and FOXTROT is marked as withdrawn.

That, at least clears up the correct spelling of ALFA.

ALFA is now Greek flagged NIKOLAOS and currently on charter to Gozo Channel Lines running between Malta and Gozo.
Nice work if you can get it
