• M/V ‘’SIMONE“ (ex “YONG GI”)

    (KLICK on picture for presentation) M/V “YONG GI” flying the flag of REPUBLIC OF SIERRA LEONE, with IMO number 8035104, called at the anchorage area of the port of Kalamata (Greece) on 15th of January 2015. Due to the fact that the ship was not responding to the several VHF calls from the local Port Authority, a unit from the local coast guard branch visited the vessel in order to execute an appropriate check. The district PSC office of Kalamata was informed by the master of the vessel that the ship suffered damage to the steering gear during her voyage from the port of Bar (Montenegro) to an unknown destination. The PSC office was also informed by the coast guard unit about the overall substandard condition of the vessel. During the inspection 40 deficiencies were found, of which 28 were considered ground for detention. As a conclusion to the above and due to the fact that the overall condition of the vessel was obviously substandard, the ship was detained. On 21st May 2015, after re-inspection of the vessel and the submission of all the relevant documents to the responsible PCS office, by the responsible parties (Flag State, RO), the detention was lifted. The majority of the deficiencies (36 of 40) that were found during the first visit had been rectified. For the remaining deficiencies appropriate actions taken were set to ensure rectification. The ship departed from the port Kalamata on 22nd May 2015 after being under detention for more than four months.
