Identification not helped by the fact there was another KONDOR, 499gt, also built 1952!

I think its a safe bet you have the right one, Ron.

Its not shown in earlier issues of lloyds but the larger KONDOR was fitted with One 10 Ton Derrick, this one has two smaller ones. Also the larger one is about 80 feet longer and had Radar.

A recent entry on shipspotting.com provides details of her fate: 1993 BU Hövding Skipsophuggin. (wherever that is!!)
