A latest view from Navi e Armatori of the long laid up, and for sale, Beniamino Carnevale.

As is perhaps to be expected given her long period out of use, she is looking a bit sad for herself; hopefully the ship isn't too far gone to have a useful future - albeit I think she the damage from the engine fire which forced her to be taken out of use has not been fixed.

Any news from the Beniamino ?
There was no offer from anybody ?
This ship is since many years a financial total-damage and the wished 3,2 Mio. are much too much.
Wondering about this unrealistic amount.
I would tax the scrap-price around ca. 2 Mio. only.

The deadline for bids is early September so there will be no news until then. This is quite an attractive series of ships to shipowners so we'd expect it to be snapped up if it was in working condition. The questions are how bad is the damage and what condition is the vessel generally in now after years of neglect.

Shipping Italy suggests the buyers of the Beniamino Carnevale could be Turkish.

Although the price looks high for scrapping it is just above the reserve price.

Oh Beniamino Carnevale what are you doing there!

She is aground off Rometta Marea in the north east coast of Sicily this morning, the line with the tug taking her apparently to Tuzla in Turkey having broken in rough weather.

New Coast Guard video.

What remarkable bad fortune that this ship and one of her sisters (the Marko Polo) should both run spectacularly aground within a few weeks of each other.

Another new drone video of the ship (embedding has been disabled by the video owners so it needs to be viewed on Youtube):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnta0Yft44c


The same source had a live stream earlier so if you want to watch an hour fixed camera view of the B. C. being battered by waves on a beach here you go (this one has embedding allowed):

Three tugs have been trying to shift the ship but there's no sign of her budging yet.

The report at the bottom gives details of what happened next - the ship (which is officially now named the Lider Prestij) was taken to Milazzo for inspection. It doesn't seem she was actually detained and on Tuesday departed again under the tow of the tug Pothitos II bound for Tuzla.

Not so lucky was the tug in charge of the fateful original voyage - the Tedy was detained by the authorities and remains in Milazzo.
