Class was Lloyds Register, the best of the best. Her last Special Survey was 2005-01-31.

Ship was detained at Liverpool for 29 days with 37 deficiencies. 7 of these deficiencies were structural. Despite this, MCA said none of the deficiencies were Class related! The actual port state inspection reports are not made public.

This ship had a remarkable PSC record in early 2007 2007-01-08 detained in Hamburg for 4 days with 14 deficiencies. 2007-02-10 8 deficiencies, no detention in Murmansk. 2007-02-22 37 deficiencies, 29 day detention. 2007-03-31 10 deficiencies,no detention. If the deficiencies were actually fixed, they very quickly reappeared. Despite this horrific record, the ship had no trouble finding charters in a boom market.

2007-11-09 ship changed Class from LR to China Classification Society.
