Panamanian shipwreck in Blouberg

I can’t give too much information about this ship, but from what I can gather, it is a Panamanian coal ship, originally with 30000 tons of coal onboard which ran around in October 2009, and is still there.

It is literally a stones throw from the beach, and you can see the many kite-surfers in front of and around it.

Does anybody have any more information?

    You could try asking the authorities. Sure seems a bit weird that you can have a big ship out there for a few years.

    It would appear that she was not properly insured, and the salvage costs are higher than the value of the ship, or something along those lines.
