Turkish bulk carrier collided with German heavy lift ship off Constanta
Bulk carrier MARAKI K collided with heavy lift ship MARIA on Constanta outer anchorage at around 0300 UTC Oct 25, both ships understood to be under way at the time of collision, maneuvering to anchor. Reportedly both ships didn’t sustain serious damages, no leak occurred. MARAKI K movements nevertheless, are rather strange – she left anchorage at some 7 knots speed, sailed further to sea and as of 1500 UTC was moving in southern direction at some 3-4 knots speed, under way or drifting. MARIA was at anchor on Constanta Anchorage.
