Mark Rondel emailed us to say he had recently seen the vessel, renamed “Svendborgsund”, in Denmark, where she was being offered for sale. 

Do you have any further information about Svendborgsund, formerly Jørgen Amundsen, or any photos?  Please email us and we’ll add them to this page giving you a credit.
